It is a place of great peace and tranquillity, a place to stop, to catch ones breath and listen to the small gentle voice within. It is a place of meditation that speaks to our search for the deeper meaning in life. At the Sanctuary everything is designed and carried out mindfully and with compassion.
The story of the Sanctuary begins with the Foundation of the congregation of the Religious Sisters of Charity, by Mary Aikenhead, in 1815.
Vision and Mission
The vision of the Sanctuary is "to be...STILLNESS...in the world..." While its Mission is to develop and provide opportunities for individuals and groups to explore their inner wisdom and spirit, to find stillness, live harmonious and balanced lives, and to work towards the building of a caring, inclusive and fair society.
The Sanctuary Logo
The Sanctuary logo was created in 1999 with colours of deep yellow with a strong orange circle, illustrating harmony and peace; gentleness and strength; movement and openness; silence and stillness. Over the years its shape creatively included images of some of the activities that take place in the Sanctuary, each one inviting a response in the exploration and search for stillness of mind and body.
