Denise DeneveThe FCJ Retreat and Conference Centre has as its foundation and inspiration, the Charism (Spirituality) of the Society, Sisters, Faithful Companions of Jesus (FCJ). This Charism brings with it the response to God's invitation to share the mission and vision of Jesus, through Companionship, Compassionate Presence, Collaboration, Fidelity and Joy.

How does this vision touch the lives of people today? We, at the FCJ Centre, an ecumenical retreat and conference centre, extending hospitality to non-profit groups and individuals looking to 'discover their centre', believe it is by the many offerings we make available: Spiritual Direction, Retreats, Workshops, Counselling etc., but fundamentally in the words of Pope Benedict, “our willingness to be available to others, by patiently and respectfully engaging their questions and their doubts as they advance in their search for the truth and the meaning of human existence.”

Our programming shows that we understand people have a particular responsibility to engage with and reflect upon the profound and sensitive issues in today's world in the light of faith. Of course our aim is also to continue to touch the lives of all who avail themselves of our conference facilities by providing a warm, welcoming and peaceful atmosphere.

Please take a few moments to browse through the following pages to see who we are and what we have to offer.
