Amerson House Spirituality Center seeks to serve both the parish and the wider community by providing a quiet place to gather. We support the practice of spiritual living by offering group and individual retreats, as well as programming focused on contemplative life.

To provide a sacred space that welcomes and nurtures the presence of God in each guest.

To provide a place of grace, welcome, and rest in the city. To offer hospitality for retreats, meetings, quiet days, and social gatherings. To introduce, teach, and nurture practices of the Christian contemplative life including practices of contemplative prayer, discernment, spiritual direction, silence, solitude, dream work, and body prayer. To explore with integrity how practices from other spiritual traditions might enrich contemplative life.

The former rectory, built in 1957, Amerson House is a four-bedroom, three-and-one-half-bath residence located behind St. Bartholomew’s at the far northwest corner of the parking lot. After being named the Anglican House of Studies in 1999, the house was re-dedicated to the Glory of God, in memory of Dr. Richard Amerson and in thanksgiving for the Amerson Family, in 2004.
