Local catholic community
The Beatitudes ecclesial family is made up of priests and brothers, consecrated sisters and lay members. All the members of the Community share a common vocation of prayer, service and hospitality. Our Spirituality is both Eucharistic and Marian, inspired by the Carmelite tradition of contemplative prayer and living out the spirit of the Beatitudes.
The Studio of Saint Philomena specialises in the restoration and creation of Sacred Art. The Studio statues are well known for their life-like beauty and unsurpassed artistic excellence. Many churches today have statues from The Studio in order to enhance the devotional prayer life of their faithful.
The Replenish Respite and Healing Facility is in the North Canterbury countryside, away from all the stress of busy life. Our centre can cater to your needs, whether you're looking for a quiet break, a safe space to recover in, or caring support and prayer.
