Looking Ahead: Transforming the Father Peyton Center

In June 2018, Holy Cross Family Ministries started a project that will transform the Father Peyton Center and family prayer experience. The new Center, set to open in Winter 2019, will feature a museum dedicated to sharing Father Peyton’s life and mission, and newly designed spaces for interactive family prayer programs. The project will also revitalize some of the aging facilities like the kitchen, cafeteria, and Confessional.

We are excited for what’s ahead as this project will enable us to welcome many more families to learn, experience and strengthen their faith through prayer and the inspiration of Father Peyton! Lastly, we have aspirations to renovate our Chapel and Rosary Walk while also developing a proper Shrine, where pilgrims can honor Father Peyton, who we pray will one day be the “Saint for Family Prayer.” This is a historic opportunity to honor the life of Father Peyton and promote much-needed family prayer and spirituality!

The Family That Prays Together Stays Together.

“When [they] relocated to North Easton, we were delighted and love having them close by not only for the rosary, but mass, Holy Hours, confession and the spiritual direction offered. There is much joy in this ministry and much good that is done. ”
