Ard Mhuire Retreat Centre marks 50 years (Ard Mhuire)

  • Venue: Ard Mhuire Retreat Centre marks 50 years
  • Date: 14th November

Our beautiful friary and retreat centre in Ards is 50 years old!

While the Friars ards1were here since the 1930’s, the new house that you see today was opened on the13th of November 1966. This evening at 5:30 we celebrate a Mass to begin a year of thanksgiving for all of the Friars and people who have worked to ensure that this place is one of peace, prayer and spiritual refreshment for so many.


A few pictures follow from those early days of Ards as a house of studies to its present incarnation as a retreat centre…
