Our place stands on sacred ground on the slopes of Island Bay, within sight of the South Wellington coast.
It is a site steeped in history. It is the place where Suzanne Aubert acted with great faith to set up a home for disadvantaged children, and which in time became a hospital. It is a place of healing; a safe place where the spirit is nourished and people can come to find direction and peace in their lives.
As a place of prayer, pilgrimage, respite and retreat we nurture an environment for individuals and groups to collect themselves on the journey.
Come and enjoy a coffee at the Cloister Café and enjoy the well-developed gardens which create a peaceful and tranquil environment.
The Island Bay Village is a 10 minute walk along The Parade and the ocean is another 10 minutes further south. It has a good promenade around the coast. For the more energetic, there is a wonderful bush walk up the hills behind us.
