Come and draw from the well

Spiritual center operated by the religious of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

2 days

The Centre welcomes you during the week or for a week-end, a time for recharging your batteries and standing back from your situation, in an atmosphere of prayer and silence.

A pilgrimage “in Sophie’s footsteps”

Having 2 days allows you to follow the same programme as the one offered for a single day, but taking time to make your own the different aspects of Sophie’s life you have discovered.

After a thorough tour of the house, you will be able to continue your “pilgrimage” by going to pray at St Thibault’s (the Church where Sophie was baptized), to experience a “contemplative walk” among the vines (Sophie often quoted the Gospel of the vine and the branches), discover the banks of the Yonne (she left for Paris from there), pray in her room, contemplate a beautiful sampler she embroidered, which already gives hints of the spirituality of the Sacred Heart….

A Spiritual Break

As in the one-day spiritual breaks, you can opt for:
• A free spiritual break: you then have plenty of time to enjoy the house and its surroundings in any way you like. If you wish, you may ask to meet a sister of the community, for companioning, or simply to talk.
• A guided spiritual break: based on the spirituality of the Sacred Heart, the vineyards and St John’s Gospel… or some other theme chosen in accordance with the liturgical season. If you wish you may receive guidance for your prayer and have a spiritual companion.
