come away with the lord

stays & visits

rest for the weary
Jesus said to them, 'come away with me. Let us go alone to a quiet place and rest for a while’ (Mark 6:31)
We invite ‘pilgrims’ to come and share our times of prayer: the Rosary, Divine Office, Holy Mass, Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, Praise and Worship and the Way of the Cross. We welcome those wishing to visit for the day, and also welcome those who wish to stay for a few days during the week.

I witnessed so many lives changed and miracles happen over the few days. God called me to go deeper in my faith and step out in ways that have changed my life!

God's presence can be felt in the room. I always feel peace and often clarity at Stronghold; it is where God reminds me life isn't meant to be done alone.

I had a huge experience with the Holy Spirit and encountered the saving touch of Jesus. This just showed me how much God wanted to meet me, yet He was not imposing or controlling.

What a wonderful weekend. What a beautiful way to spend time with God and each other. Your openness to prayer and the work of God in your lives is transforming and something that I want to bring back with me and build on here.

Truly jaw dropping experience. There are not enough positive words in the dictionary to describe the sheer power of God’s Love that I think was felt by all at the festival.
