Map of location

The monks of the monastery of Christ our Saviour live next door to the Priory of Our Lady of Peace. The community, which was founded in 1980 by Dom Edmund Jones (+1985), belongs to the Benedictine Congregation of Our Lady of Monte Oliveto. The monks share daily worship with the nuns.

The community has no outside apostolate but welcomes guests of all denominations. Hospitality is offered to all who seek silence and time to reflect. Guests are welcome to share daily worship with the communities. The guest house can accommodate groups of various kinds and has facilities for self catering.

Throughout the year the monastery hosts interfaith meetings and Christian/Jewish dialogue meetings. The Catholic ecumenical journal ‘One in Christ’ is published twice yearly by the monks of Turvey and Rostrevor, N Ireland.
