The Father Peyton Center welcomes visitors to our center for private and communal prayer, visits to Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary and St. Joseph chapels where Mass is celebrated at noon Monday through Friday, the Fr. Feeley/Fr. Murphy Rosary Walk and the Holy Cross Cemetery where Servant of God Fr. Patrick Peyton, CSC is buried. Other sites of interest include Our Lady of Lourdes Grotto which is 300 feet on the left beyond the cemetery and the Stonehill campus with its 550 acres of beautiful lawns, lake and tree-lined walks and the Chapel of Mary at the center of the campus.
We invite you to visit the Fr. Feeley/Fr. Murphy Rosary Walk that runs between Holy Cross Family Ministries (HCFM) and My Brother’s Keeper (MBK). The path has five granite columns, each with four images from the twenty mysteries of the Rosary. The Joyful and Sorrowful Mysteries begin at HCFM and end at MBK, and the Glorious and Luminous Mysteries begin at MBK and end at HCFM. In addition to the columns there are two granite benches at each set of mysteries.
After praying the Rosary you are invited to spend time in prayer in Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary Chapel in the center, view displays about the life and works of Servant of God Fr. Patrick Peyton, CSC and visit the bookstore/gift shop where all the DVD’s produced by Family Theater are available for purchase along with a selection of religious books for children and adults, medals, crosses and gifts for special occasions.
Visitors at the Center can walk to the Holy Cross Community Cemetery in ten minutes by taking a right onto Route 138 and visit the grave of Servant of God Fr. Patrick Peyton, CSC, whose grave stone is draped with rosaries left by other visitors. The cemetery is immediately on the left of the Route 138 (Washington Street) entrance to the campus and the Grotto to Our Lady of Lourdes is further up to the left about 300 feet.
