A ministry of the Sisters of Providence of St. Vincent de Paul, Providence Spirituality Centre offers a variety of retreats and spirituality programs throughout the year. Our ministries of Spiritual Direction and Retreats, serve a wide ecumenical community. We welcome many diverse faith and special interest groups who book our facility for their particular day-only, overnight or week-long retreats and spirituality programs; we are always happy to serve as facilitators when needed.

Providence Spirituality Centre is a warm, inviting, peace-filled Retreat House, on the grounds of the Motherhouse of the Sisters of Providence of St. Vincent de Paul. The lovely thirty-three acre setting, spotted with paths, benches, old trees and patches of delightful flowers make it an oasis of tranquility in the heart of the Kingston, Ontario community. The Centre is most especially a place where you can take time apart to rest, renew your spirit and reconnect in a meaningful way with God, the Source of all peace and joy.

Our Vision

Open to the Spirit moving within each person,
we desire to be instruments of God’s love.
We welcome all to this sacred space.
We trust that serving with compassion,
we will all experience a deeper fullness of life
and will strengthen one another
to participate more responsibly
in creating a just and peaceful world.

Glory be to God whose power working in us
can do infinitely more than we can ask or imagine. (Eph. 3:20)

Providence Spirituality Centre shares in the mission of the Sisters of Providence of St. Vincent de Paul.
