The 31-room convent is owned and managed by the Sisters of Notre Dame de Sion. Central to this ministry is the study of the Word of God and its focus on reconciliation between peoples. Also housed in the convent is the Chemin Neuf Community which is a Roman Catholic community with an ecumenical vocation of Christians of different denominations. Accordingly the convent offers a renowned biblical school in English, French and Spanish. Room furnishings are modest, and common facilities include a beautiful, historic chapel, on site dining room, and lecture halls.
Within the ancient walls of the city of Jerusalem situated between the Damascus Gate and the ‘Lion’s Gate and just steps away from the Arab Souk is a beautiful convent known as Ecce Homo.
The terraces of the hospice afford guests some of the most spectacular views of the Temple area with the Dome of the Rock, the Western Wall and the Holy Sepulcher as well as the surrounding hills. Beneath the convent, ancient years of history have been discovered including the Strouthian cisterns from the time of Heron as well as pavement (lithostrotos in Greek) fro the ruins of the Antonia Fortress (35 BCE).
