Fondation “Le Foyer de Charité”, based in Châteauneuf-de-Galaure, was recognised as a non-profit foundation (FRUP) by the decree of 7 February 1972 published in the OJ of 12 February 1972.

The Foundation supports the international development of the Work of the Foyer de Charité so that each foyer can fulfil its mission of welcoming everyone. Each person must be able to stay in a Foyer de Charité, whatever their financial resources.

We believe that everyone, whatever their journey in life, must have the opportunity to benefit from these havens of peace to be strengthened in depth.

The Foundation is authorised to receive donations and bequests. These gifts and bequests help to support the building of new foyers and help the poorest communities, especially in developing countries or those experiencing conflict.

Why go on spiritual retreat ?

Whatever the reasons, the spiritual retreat is a breathing space in a setting that inspires inner reflection. The setting, silence and pace of the retreat give the participants the freedom to open up to themselves and to God.

A spiritual retreat is a break for the heart and the mind. It creates a breathing space for:

  • Relaxing, resting and finding comfort in the middle of our very busy lives;
  • Meeting with God in silence, reading his Word and rekindling the fire of our faith;
  • Reflecting on the meaning of our existence, taking a step back before making important choices;
  • Exploring the key questions of life and gaining a better understanding of the foundations of the Christian faith.
