Welcome to St. Mary's Towers

A SPECIAL PLACE:

Steeped in the spirituality of the heart, central to the life and spirit of the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart, the Retreat Centre is set in 500 hectares of natural bush land that cretes a beautiful, pastoral, peaceful environment for anyone seeking to relax and enjoy God in silence and solitude, with a supportive, praying community.

A PLACE OF SILENCE:

Retreats are held in an atmosphere of silence to nourish and support prayer and healing.

THE HOME OF THE SPIRIT:

St. Mary's Towers is home to a way of life. The people at The Towers are motivated and informed by their personal experience of the love of the heart of Jesus, to create an environment where people can listen deeply to God in their personal lives and in creation.
