Convent & Facilities (as of Jan 2024, Southsea House only)


We recite the Divine Office and celebrate Mass daily within our beautiful chapel. You are always welcome to join us. The chapel is also available for group use.

Comfortable accommodation

We offer one double and five single bedrooms each with a wash basin and tea and coffee making facilities. Bathrooms are next door. An easy access ‘medi-bath’ is also available. There is a lift to all floors (except the basement meeting room).


Our well stocked library, consistently updated with new titles, is open to the public. Perhaps you need academic books or a seasonal study book for Lent or Advent? There is no lending charge.

Beautiful gardens

Stroll around or simply sit and enjoy our excellently maintained gardens. Gaze upon beautiful roses, daffodils, grape hyacinths and pansies while relaxing under the shade of the fig tree. There are many squirrels, a shy frog, foxes and an infamous white squirrel!

Meeting rooms

There are times when it may be beneficial to meet away from your church, or perhaps a group of you just need some peace and quiet! Our light and airy conservatory and adjoining sitting room provide space to relax for up to 20 people. Alternatively, our basement room has it’s own entrance, kitchen and WC and can cater for up to 10 people (there is no wheelchair access or lift to this room). Please contact us if you would like to use it.
