St Katharine’s Parmoor is a Christian House of Prayer situated just outside the village of Frieth. It is a haven for quiet reflection for people of all faiths and none providing a venue for retreats, quiet days and other gatherings. As a legacy of Sue Ryder and the Sisters of St Katharine’s we are guardians of the ambitions they held.

Being a Christian is not an occupational requirement for any of these roles but we would expect successful applicants to be sympathetic and supportive to the Christian ethos of the house.
