It is with great regret that in the light of the Covid-19 virus pandemic we have decided to close both our Xaverian Centres until further notice. Coatbridge has closed already, and Preston Centre will close on Friday the 20th of March. The Covid-19 virus brings an unprecedented challenge and given the rapidly changing public health situation and the latest government advice, this is the only course open to us.
We will hold you in our prayers at this time. Please pray for us as we seek to respond positively to the current crisis.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding currently.

The Xaverian Missionaries of the United Kingdom initiated an important gathering of Xaverian Missionaries working or interested in interreligious dialogue from Europe and the United States. The organization of the event brought an intense five days, together with sharing among confreres in an important area of our congregational mission today, along with friends and other colleagues.
