Description :

The ecumenical women's spirituality centre, known by the ancient name for Holy Wisdom 'Sophia', opened at Cumberland Park in 1991. Although founded by the Dominican nuns of the Holy Cross parish, Sophia embraces spirituality in its broadest sense. Teaching, activities and counselling are arranged by the centre, which describes itself as 'a circle of women, not an institution'. The members are committed to nurturing the spirituality of those who come to the centre, in celebrating together, and in working constructively for justice.
