Welcome to Holy Hill Hermitage

We invite people of all faiths to “Come away and rest awhile (Mark 6:31)” in an atmosphere of silence and solitude. Retreats can be for a few days, a few weeks, or a longer sabbatical.

  

                                   

 

 

Visiting Sunday 5 September

In July, 2020, we celebrated the 25th Anniversary of Holy Hill.  We put up a display of photographs from the building years, accompanied by a series of charming cartoons drawn by our friend Clare Lynch.  Because of Covid, our celebration was limited to 30 people, so we kept the display through the next year of isolation.  Now we can invite anyone who has been vaccinated to come and celebrate with us belatedly.  Bishop John Fleming will celebrate Mass at noon, and we will have tea afterwards in Carrowcullen.
