The Houben Centre, located at the interface of Ardoyne and Shankill, has the twin functions of being

  • the parish centre for Holy Cross parish
  • a social and cross-community centre – in service of peace and reconciliation.

The Centre's remit is to serve the people and communities of North Belfast, in particular, the Holy Cross parish community and the people of the Ardoyne and Shankill areas, with a wider outreach to other groups and agencies across Belfast and the North.  The focus on peace and reconciliation has been a primary characteristic, for which the Centre has gained renown locally, nationally and internationally.
