Hesychia House of Prayer
Hesychia House of Prayer is located in New Blaine, Arkansas, about ten miles east of Subiaco on Highway 22. It is in a rural area amid pastures of grazing cattle, surrounded by mountain ranges of exquisite beauty. The quiet and the natural beauty create a peaceful atmosphere conducive to prayer. Each guest has a fully-equipped hermitage for his/her use, including cooking and refrigeration facilities, a full bath, air conditioning and electric heating in addition to a wood-burning stove. Linens are provided. No pets are allowed.
Retreatants prepare their own breakfast and lunch in their hermitages and provide their own food. Short-term guests, i.e. those staying up to one week, are invited to share the evening meal with the core community, or if they choose, they may prepare that meal for themselves in the hermitage also, in which case, they will need to provide that food as well. All guests, if they wish, may join the sisters for community prayer which consists of Mass and the Liturgy of the Hours.
The suggested donation for the hermitages is $50/night for the first week; $35/night thereafter; and $20 for a day only. However, if someone is unable to pay the requested amount, a lesser amount for short-term guests can be arranged, as we do not want anyone wishing to spend time with God here to stay away because of lack of money. If you are interested in making a reservation or want additional information, please contact the House of Prayer directly at [email protected] or call (479) 938-7375.
