The pastoral centers in the Catholic Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston are places for outreach to individuals and groups. As an ecumenical center, we are open to communities outside of the Diocese for religious, educational or formational purposes.
We are situated on forty acres of wooded property along the Opequon Creek, in the Shenandoah Valley. The overall serenity of the property is complemented with well-maintained walking trails through the woods and along the creek, water gardens, outdoor decks and patios providing many choice places for quiet reflection.
Priest Field offers facilities for single-day and extended-stay programs:
Thirty-nine individual guest rooms, each with two double beds, or one queen bed, a private bath and an outdoor balcony or patio. Of these, two rooms are handicapped-accessible with queen beds, private baths, outdoor decks and optional adjoining guest rooms, and are located by the elevator. See the All Hallows Hall Map above for the room layout.
Four hermitages for private retreat. Each hermitage has a small kitchen, private bathroom, separate bedroom with a double bed, and a living room with a full-size convertible sofa.
Two dormitories, one with 16 beds and the other with 26 beds, for additional overnight lodging.
Five conference rooms to comfortably host groups of various sizes. Each is equipped with tables, chairs, and audio-visual support items, as requested. One conference room (Thomas Merton) has digital video-conferencing equipment available. There are also a variety of small meeting rooms to discover throughout All Hallows Hall.
The dining room overlooks the Opequon Creek and serves up to three meals per day as requested (minimum of 10 guests per meal).
Two chapels for worship services or individual prayer. The Blessed Sacrament chapel seats 25, and the All Souls chapel can accommodate larger groups.
In addition, Priestfield maintains many beautiful gardens and outdoor prayer spaces, as well as several miles of trail through the beautiful hardwood and cedar forests. The Opequon Creek runs through Priest Field’s property, which allows groups that want to swim or bring kayaks to do so.
There is much more to see and discover at Priest Field! If you would like to know more, please call or (better yet) pay us a visit!
