The Abbey welcomes you to The Hermitage, a center for prayer.

We now welcome guests to our outdoor prayer center in the Abbey’s back yard.  Consisting of a biblical stations of the cross, a Way of The Cross Labyrinth, a Prayer Gazebo, a waterfall pond, as well as The Abbey’s patio, gardens, and grounds, this dedicated space offers a safe, socially-distant opportunity to meet with Jesus.  This would be a very timely offering to leaders, followers, and seekers of Jesus at a time when few sacred spaces specifically dedicated to Him are available for reflection and prayer.  To visit, either stop by, ringing one of The Abbey’s doorbells to let The Abbot know you’re onsite, or contact him by text or phone at 508-579-3442, or by emailing him at fatherlen@abbeyoftheway.us.

After assessing the region’s need and interest, we hope to open an indoor Hermitage prayer center located in the Abbey basement.  It will feature three separate spaces for prayer: a large room for group prayer (Phase 1), a smaller room for personal prayer and the arts (Phase 2), and a study room (Phase 3) for those wishing to explore God’s Word and world in a prayerful environment.  A 5-minute promotional video describing the extent of the indoor project can be viewed here .  Those wishing additional information about this aspect of the Hermitage can contact us at the email address at the bottom of this page.

For an overview of the entire project, an 11-minute video, describing the background and rationale for the Prayer Center, can be found here:

Please join us in praying that The Hermitage, both presently outdoors and possibly indoors, will provide a space for believers, particularly leaders, and non-believers, to encounter the Presence of The Living God.
