About Us

Llannerchwen belongs to the English/Welsh Province of the Society of the Sacred Heart. The Society is an international Roman Catholic Congregation of women who are committed to a life of contemplation and active service, and who wish to create communion. 

The managers at Llannerchwen are two lay women who form the resident community (called the Team on the retreats page). They are assisted by an ecumenical body of visiting retreat guides (women and men, lay and religious), and also some local people called Friends of Llannerchwen. The Friends come to look after the place if both managers need to be away at the same time. They also sometimes help with practical tasks, through financial gifts or through fundraising and advertising. 

If you are interested in becoming a Friend of Llannerchwen, please contact us via our contact form or telephone us on 01874 622 902.
