A safe space for prayer
Since the establishment of the Irish Province in the late 1800s, our MSCs have devoted their time to serving their parishes through spiritual guidance and practical support, preaching parish missions and conducting retreats and workshops across Ireland, England, Scotland, and Wales.
We currently have two active MSC retreat centres in the Irish Province. These centres offer a safe space for reflection, prayer, and peace, where those who visit can find sanctuary in God’s loving embrace. Different MSC retreat programmes are available to suit all needs, and both of our retreat centres offer a warm welcome to all.
Croí Nua, Taylor’s Hill, Galway
Croí Nua Spirituality Centre was established in 2002, and is managed collectively by MSCs and MSC lay associates. The Irish “Croí Nua” means “a new heart” – with a programme including workshops, short courses, lectures, retreats, and liturgical services, the centre offers a sacred space in Galway where people can hear God’s Word and experience God’s love.
