Description of Notre Dame Center


Notre Dame Center in Jerusalem represents the largest and most comprehensive Christian guest house in the Holy Land. The 145-guest rooms are in the process of being completely renovated and most offer twin-bedded accommodations and private washrooms. In 2004, Pope John Paul II entrusted the care and management of Notre Dame to the Legionaries of Christ. The Lady of Peace Chapel, located inside of Notre dame, offers daily mass in English as well as adornation in th afternoons between 5:00pm and 6:15pm. Legionary priests are available for mass and confessions.


Location of Notre Dame


The property is ideally situated across from the New Gate, considered one of the primary Old City Fathers in the early 1880’s which were seeking a French pilgrimage home.


Background of Notre Dame


The first foundation stone was laid in 1885 and in 1886, Monseighneur Poyet of Lyons, the Vicar General of the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem proposed the name “Notre Dame de France”.  Badly damaged during the war of 1948, it was eventually turned over to the Holy See on March 2, 1972. By special decree of Pope John Paul II on December 13, 1978, it was erected as a Pontifical Institute. 

Double rooms at the guesthouse are priced from $200 per night including breakfast for individual rooms. Contact Travelujah for group bookings.
