St. Joseph Renewal Centre welcomes people from all walks of life individuals walking a spiritual path founded in the tradition of their choice, church or other groups providing “time away” for their members. Our location in Mabou, Cape Breton will provide the peace and quiet you need to relax, recharge and reconnect.




The word “pray” comes from the Latin word precari, which simply means to entreat or ask. In fact, although pray is not often used this way anymore, it can simply mean “please,” as in “pray continue your story.”
