A community of men gathered together in the name of the Lord serving the people of UK and Ireland
Our Community - Benburb Priory
The Priory at Benburb is the home of the Servite Friars since 1949. The resident community of friars are at the heart of the daily prayer and community life, although often they are joined by folk loving locally and visitors from far and near.
Initially the large manor house, in its beautiful setting on the banks of the Blackwater River, provided a location for the training and education of Servite Friars. Over the past 30 years its function has changed and it has become a retreat and conference centre.
Each day one of the friars is available for prayer and blessing. Many would wish to pray before the beautiful picture of St Peregrine Laziosi OSM. The picture in the chapel was painted by the late Sr. Aloysius McVeigh. Twice a month, on the first and third Monday evening there is a Mass in honour of St Peregrine to pray for the sick.

Prayer To The Way To Peace
Father of love, hear my prayer.
Help me to know Your Will
and to do it with courage and faith.
Accept my offering of myself,
all my thoughts, words, deeds, and sufferings.
May my life be spent giving You glory.
Give me the strength to follow Your call,
so that Your Truth may live in my heart
and bring peace to me and to those I meet,
for I believe in Your Love.
