Because faith is deeply personal but cannot be lived alone, the Sophie Barat Center welcomes those who wish to participate in retreats, spiritual exercises, theme weekends, training courses, and activities for 18-35 year olds, throughout the year.


The house welcomes those who wish to participate in retreats. These retreats are open to all, young and old, singles, couples or groups, secular people, religious, priests...

What we offer to young adults and students


Ignatius of Loyola said, "It is not knowing much that satisfies and satiates the soul, but feeling and tasting things within.” The Feeling God course is a proposal for 18-35 year olds who want to "feel and taste" God's presence in their lives. This 5-day introductory retreat to the Exercises is based on the Word of God, spiritual direction and silence. It is suitable for students and young professionals.


It's possible to prepare for exams in a pleasant environment, free from all material constraints! Throughout the year, the Center welcomes young people to study, in a place conducive to peace and reflection. Those who wish to do so are welcome every morning for communal prayer.


For beginning teachers (<4 years experience) who want to: step back, pray, share, help each other, relax, laugh, review the beginning of the year.
