It was on October 12, 2003, the Feast of Our Lady of Pilar, that a spiritual life center was dedicated by then Archbishop Sean O'Malley on 109 acres of land in Medway, MA. The facility became a reality as a result of SIster Margaret Catherine SIms, CSJ receiving direction from God on January 6, 1993 to build a spiritual life center. This direction from God was confirmed by Maria Esperanza and the property became known as Betania II.
The Property has continued to be developed with onsite lodging known as Sts Francis & Clare Retreat House, dedicated in October 2011. In addtion to the spiritual life center and onsite lodging, this sacred space provides several mediation areas and walking paths among the pines. You will find outdoor Stations of the Cross, Our Lady's Grotto along side a beautiful brook setting as well as other areas equipped with statues and gardens for mediation and relaxation. In addition, Our Lady's Chapel is open daily, Monday through Friday, from 9 am - 5 pm, for Eucharistic Adoration.
