Passionist Monastery

Glen Osmond Monastery

Glen Osmond Monastery, built around ‘The Glen,’ a nineteenth-century mansion purchased by the Passionist Fathers in 1896, now includes a fully-equipped conference centre. The Confraternity has booked the Foley Room for conference proceedings, and St Paul’s Chapel for our concelebrated Masses and other liturgy.

We have secured budget accommodation in Glen Osmond, a 10 minute walk from the monastery. (NB: For the inform, we have also booked a limited number of bedrooms, with shared bathroom facilities, at the Passionist monastery.)

Sevenhill Cellars

Trip to Sevenhill

One of the most significant sites in Australian Catholic history is less than two hours from our conference venue. On Thursday, we will make a daytrip to Sevenhill, where we will receive a tour and enjoy lunch.

As well as being the oldest winery in the Clare Valley, Sevenhill is the first Jesuit foundation in Australia. Donald MacKillop, brother of St Mary of the Cross, studied and later taught here. The winery, established in 1852, has provided Australian parishes with sacramental wine ever since. Sevenhill also produces a range of premium table wines.
