About

The Spirituality Center provides a contemplative setting with spiritual and educational opportunities to experience the goodness of life more deeply.

We offer a variety of workshops, retreats, and days of prayer for both individuals and groups. We also offer non-profit groups a wonderful setting and a peaceful atmosphere to conduct their own seminars, workshops, meetings, and retreats.

The Notre Dame Spirituality Center is owned and 
sponsored by the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur and is located in beautiful, scenic Ipswich, Massachusetts on over 100 acres of land surrounded by nature’s 
beauty. It is truly an oasis of peace, space, solitude and quiet. It is but a short drive from the Spirituality Center to Crane’s Beach and Gloucester. The Spirituality Center is approximately an hour’s drive from Boston or Southern New Hampshire, or accessible by commuter rail – Ipswich MBTA.

The Center provides delicious meals, single and double occupancy bedrooms, as well as small and large conference rooms. Shared bathrooms are fully equipped.  The Center is handicapped accessible.
