About us

The Institue of Charity (The Rosminians) has been present In England and Wales, since 1835. The first Rosminian religious were excellent missionaries and the example of Fr Luigi Gentili (considered a very holy priest) generated great fervour and many conversions across the UK. Schools were soon opened, and parishes were assigned to Rosminian priests.Two of the schools, Grace Dieu and Ratcliffe still provide excellent education, and are also available to non-Catholic students as well. In Rugby, Leicester, London, Cardiff, Newport and Loughborough the parishes entrusted to the Rosminian Fathers are thriving, and Rosminians from India and Africa are now involved and support these parishes.

The Rosmini Centre House of Prayer is situated in Leicestershire, attached to the great Rosminian College known as Ratcliffe College. The essential purpose of the Centre is to be a place of prayer and a sign of love of God and neighbour, through various activities of spiritual, intellectual, and temporal charity.
