Who We Are & What We Do
St Antony’s Priory, in Durham, is both a residential praying community and a Christian spirituality centre. It is operated by the Society of the Sacred Mission, an Anglican Religious Order originally established towards the end of the 19th Century.
Today the Priory offers spiritual accompaniment and training for spiritual directors, hospitality for groups and individuals, and a varying programme of courses and quiet days.
The residential community provides an opportunity for men and women of any age, who may be wondering where God might be calling them next, to spend up to a year immersed in the discipline and structure of the religious life.
This includes a full timetable of services in the chapel (which members of the public are also very welcome to attend). Our worship is in the catholic tradition of the Church of England, and includes significant periods of silent prayer.
Overnight accommodation is available in the Cottage guesthouse, which has four self-catering rooms available for people wishing to spend a few days on retreat.
