Hillcrest Retreat Centre is located in Brown’s Town, St. Ann. The five-acre property has dormitories, a chapel, administrative block, a labyrinth and quiet garden areas for reflection

Hillcrest welcomes guests and retreatants, for spiritual direction, for rest, or for a time to share in a life of prayer and contemplation. The Centre is also open to individuals and groups from Congregations, Cures, schools and Companies. All are welcome for Quiet Days, Study Days, Days of Reflection, Visits for worship, Confession, and Spiritual Direction, as well as groups for conferences. Daily Eucharist, Morning and Evening Prayer are celebrated and retreatants may participate at regular times during the day. Depending on the individual or group, all meals may be in silence, except on Sundays and major feast days. Retreats may be conducted, private or directed as requested.

The Retreat Centre is a 30-bed conference facility, with spacious meeting rooms, a reference (non-lending) library, and the Saint Anne Chapel. The dinning room offers an intimate group setting. The usual accommodation provided is double occupancy with shared bathroom facilities. Enquires about costs should be made directly with the Centre.
