New Beginnings House of Prayer
"A Contemplative House of Prayer with an Apostolic Calling"

Send us your prayer requests
When it comes to retreats...
we believe in the value of
location, location, location.
We are a Houston-area
ecumenical contemplative house of prayer offering silence, solitude and retreat to those who would come apart and
"rest awhile"... and prayer and formation for those seeking to deepen their life in the Spirit.
The safest, easiest way to
give your two mites!

Prayer — In community or alone in quiet
places. Lectio Divina (Sacred Reading of
Scripture) and Centering Prayer are
practices experienced and taught
regularly. Also we daily pray with
intercessions, for all prayer requests that
come into New Beginnings. We also offer
prayers of healing to those who seek
wholeness of body, mind and soul.

Benedictine Formation  — A
Benedictine Formation Program is a
monthly program that is led by our
Benedictine Oblates. Contact us about
how you can be a part of the program or
feel led to walk towards becoming a
Benedictine Oblate.

The Daily Office — Praying the psalms
and prayers that help us to experience
Kingdom living in our own lives.
