The Servite Priory of Benburb was opened on 5th June 1949 by a small group of Servite Friars who came from Chicago in 1948, with a spirit of prayer and healing. At this present time the Priory is essentially a house of healing and reconciliation.
People come as individuals or in a group to experience a spiritual and cultural oasis, a unique heritage centre with iconic buildings, castle and nice pathways. It is indeed a place of natural beauty and tranquillity with the River Blackwater running through its grounds.
In keeping with its ambience, the Priory has an open-door policy providing pastoral, educational, spiritual and community support to individuals of all ages.
The Friar Servants of Mary, called the Servites together with the Servite family and friends of the Servites and many other collaborators, around them many people from near and far gather to be part of this quiet goodness. Hence the Priory is a place of meeting, sharing ideas, and moving into a new and brighter future
