The Father Peyton Center Revitalization Project

Transforming the Peyton Center and Family Prayer Experience

The Father Peyton Center Overview

The Father Peyton Center, located in Easton, Massachusetts, welcomes over 25,000 visitors annually to experience a variety of spiritually enriching opportunities that further strengthen families and our communities.

Visitors spend time in Rosary prayer, attend Mass in Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary Chapel, partake in sacramental retreats, family-focused programs, and other activities such as our educational and inspiring Father Peyton Guild events.

Holy Cross Family Ministries has begun an ambitious project to revitalize the existing Peyton Center to create a faith-filled, interactive learning and prayer experience, and a resting place to honor Venerable Patrick Peyton.

Inspiring Faith and Prayer for All

The exciting transformation began in June 2018! Our master plan includes three phases:  

Phase 1 (underway)- The creation of the interactive Father Peyton museum and new multi-purpose meeting rooms for family prayer programs. Additionally, aging facilities like the kitchen, cafeteria, and Confessional will be updated.

Phase 2- Renovation of the Chapel and Rosary Walk.

Phase 3- Develop a resting place in honor of Father Patrick Peyton, who we pray will one day be the "Saint for Family Prayer."

This project will share the life of Father Peyton and how his work continues through HCFM, while providing families new, inspiring prayer experiences and spiritual programs. This is a historic opportunity to honor the life of Father Peyton and promote much-needed family prayer and spirituality.
