The Christian Heritage Centre at Stonyhurst exists to offer a deeper spiritual and intellectual engagement with the Christian Faith, inspired by the wealth of Christian heritage housed at Stonyhurst College. This collection of relics, artefacts and books, accumulated by the Society of Jesus and which testifies to the Christian Faith of this country, has been used over the centuries to teach and inspire.
We aim to continue in this tradition by providing opportunities and facilities for education and study, for Christian leadership formation, and for religious retreat.
The Christian Heritage Centre at Stonyhurst has supported the refurbishment of the Historic Libraries and Museum at Stonyhurst College and has restored the historic water mill into a residential and education facility: Theodore House.
Rt Rev. John Arnold, Bishop of Salford
The Centre has been guided from its inception, through the building of Theodore House, to a plan for continued development by its dedicated trustees, who continue to bring their expertise to bear in the Centre’s work.
The charity is grateful to the following people, who continue to offer their expertise in an advisory capacity. The Centre’s operation and continued development relies on the daily work and collaboration of the current team.
