WHO WE ARE
FCJ Retreat and Conference Centre is a place of hospitality and hope where God can be experienced in a changing world. The FCJ Centre is rooted in the gift of the FCJ Charism given by God to Marie Madeleine D’Houet, the foundress of the Society, Sisters, Faithful Companions of Jesus.
The FCJ Centre is a place where people can come to get nourished for life’s journey. Where an eco-friendly environment can be found. A place to discover the right relationship with self and others; where the cosmos and God are cherished.
