We offer an annual programme of retreats, which includes provision for individuals, groups and parishes. Whether you want to come on a structured retreat or simply take time out for whatever reason we welcome you. We are happy to offer you guidance whilst you are here or you may decide just to have some space to yourself. We welcome people of all faiths or none to come and enjoy the peace and prayerfulness at Minsteracres.
We have a number of resources for reflection to help you. There is our pilgrim walk--a reflective walk through our grounds, the Trasna (labyrinth), our Cross of Hope , stations of the cross , prayer spaces , the Peace Garden and our art studio as well as green gym activities in partnership with The Conservation Volunteers
