Hawkstone Hall is an early 18th century Georgian mansion set in extensive parkland in Shropshire, England. It now serves the church as an international centre for spiritual renewal. It has been a welcoming home to a multitude of priests, religious and lay people in their search for growth and understanding.
The purpose of Hawkstone is to provide a sympathetic space for people to rediscover and renew their loving attachment to Jesus of Nazareth. Its purpose is also to offer people an opportunity to rest their bodies and enjoy the peace of this beautiful space.
Staffed by the Redemptorists of the London Province, together with other religious and lay people, Hawkstone fulfills the desire of St Alphonsus, the founder of the Redemptorists, that a Redemptorist house should be a place where priests and people can find refreshment for their tired spirit.
Hawkstone is ideal for sabbaticals. It offers three courses each year, one for 7 weeks, the other two for 12 weeks. The Hawkstone courses have two main objectives: to meet the personal and spiritual needs of women and men who are involved in the church’s changing mission, and to enable them to face the new challenges of being church in the world of the 21st century.
