What's on at the
The Institute of Sisters of Mercy of Australia and Papua New Guinea has made the difficult decision to cease the operations of the Sacred Spaces Ministry on the Singleton Convent site.
This decision means that Sacred Spaces Singleton will no longer be holding tours, concerts, weddings or venue hire. The site is currently closed because of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the official closure of Sacred Spaces is effective from 1st September 2020.
In 1995 the Singleton site became the home of the Sacred Spaces ministry as a place of welcome, hospitality, heritage, and culture and has touched the lives of people who have passed through the doors. The Institute is currently exploring options to enable the long term future of the convent site.
Unfortunately, after much deliberation, the level of funding per annum required to subsidise Sacred Spaces to enable the ministry to continue, as well as to maintain the building and site is financially unsustainable now and into the future.
Sacred Spaces are very grateful to the many sisters, staff and volunteers who have been part of the Sacred Spaces story over the past 25 years.
