PRAYER AND SPIRITUALITY CENTRE

 


The establishment of the house of prayer and spirituality centre “Our Lady of the Assumption” was begun in 1946 with the purchase of the land. It measures a space of 879 square meters. Up to 1986 the complex was only a church with 3 rooms around it. In the same year the construction of a three-story hostel was begun in the green area around the church.
In 2002 two stories were completed and provided with a heaing system as well as with an elevator. Up until 2001 there was a Mass celebrated in the church every Sunday. During the period of 2002-2004, because of the works of enlarging and completing the hostel, the celebration of Mass was interrupted.
Mass was celebrated only whenever there was a group who would be visiting there occasionally or whenever some priest would go there from Alexandretta. Every year for the feast of the Assumption, August 15 th, there is a solemn celebration of Holy Mass.
Today this house can offer hospitality to about 35 persons. In general it is used by the parish of Our Lady of the Annunciation for week-end retreats for families, young people and children in accordance with the catechetical programme. Besides this anyone or any group who request to spend a few quiet and restful days there may reserve the place in advance.
The house has also been set up with a generator in case of lack of electricity which is often the case there. There are both single and double rooms of which 15 are en suite. There are 2 big kitchens, a dining room and two living rooms. Two spacious terraces complete this fantastic house of prayer and spirituality where peace and tranquility reign.
