This building is located adj. the St. Aloysius College Clavius Building

This latest addition to the campus of St. Aloysius College brings together two independent but related facilities back within the St. Aloysius fold. On the ground floor, the Spirituality Centre caters for the neighbouring College and local community, providing religious education and counselling services.

A small conference facility, a prayer room and interview rooms are included. The Residence, a large house for up to 10 priests and their guests occupies the upper three floors. This space is entered separately from Hill Street.

The Residence incorporates a small chapel, visible as a tall timber box to the rear. It also includes a reception and dining around an internal double volume, and upper lounge leading to roof terrace.

Located at the highest point of Garnethill, the property marks the end of a long run of sandstone tenements to the west and the transition to the sizeable educational and ecclesiastical quarter of Garnethill, comprising St. Aloysius College and Church, and The Mackintosh School of Art. The building completes the gateway intended by the College’s Clavius building opposite.
