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 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 Plum Island. The Spirituality Center is approximately an hour’s drive from Boston or Southern New Hampshire, or accessible by commuter rail – Ipswich MBTA.
