Bethany House of Prayer offers a place of sanctuary for contemplation, refreshment, and creativity in daily living.  Sharing in a ministry of prayer and hospitality with the Sisters of St. Anne-Bethany, we provide opportunities for individuals and groups to nourish an awareness of the Holy in daily life.

Come be refreshed by quiet days, retreats and spiritual direction at the Bethany House of Prayer, where beauty, hospitality, worship, and the companionship and witness of others sustain and encourage the life of the soul.

See our Upcoming Offerings for more information on opportunities and ways you can participate.
Join us this Fall for Contemplative Prayer, Contemplative Eucharist, or a personal Quiet Day.
Join us December 12 for Keeping Watch: An Evening of Stillness and Prayer

We are taking reservations for groups who wish to come for a day or overnight in 2017 and 2018. Please email or call us to arrange a time for your group to be renewed by time away in this beautiful retreat setting.

We look forward to your presence with us.

A Note from Bethany House of Prayer’s Executive Director, Julia Slayton, in our time of sorrow:
Dearest Friends,
      We are upheld by your love and prayers in this time of deepest loss and sorrow.  Our beloved son, Luke, was known and loved by so many of you.  His extraordinary loving spirit is ever present even now.
     We welcome your presence and prayers next Friday, Dec. 8 at 11:00 a.m. at Grace Episcopal Church in Newton in thanksgiving for his beautiful life.
     We are lost in grief yet given solace by community that enfolds us, God’s grace, and your and Luke’s deep love.
Julia and Brad
