Did you know that Shalom House, our Diocesan Retreat Centre, has ceased operations at its long-time facility in St. Raphael’s, Ontario? Iona Academy Catholic Primary School will be expanding into the premises in the near future.

 The new Retreat Centre is located in the former Poor Clare Sisters’ Monastery and has been transformed into the new Shalom Retreat Centre. All renovations are complete and the Centre is already open. The facility sleeps 28 in a combination of rooms. Every bedroom is servced with a sink, and individual washrooms are located in the hallways. A large chapel and smaller oratory are available for worship, prayer, and contemplatin. A large meeting room is complemented by smaller breakout areas. The Retreat Centre also includes a full-service kitchen with cook and a sunny dining room. On the grounds one will find a grotto of the Nativity, Shrine to Our Lady and a Rosary meditation path.
