Chers amis,

“L'Ermitage” and “Foyer Saints Louis & Zélie Martin”, the two reception centers of our sanctuary, offer accommodation and catering services by reservation.

The community of the Servant Sisters of Saint Thérèse of the Child Jesus and the lay staff will welcome you there for your retreats or pilgrimages, or simply for lunch during a family walk in the footsteps of the Martin family.

We offer you an annual calendar of spiritual retreats and weekends for all those who wish to deepen their faith by being inspired by the spiritual life of little Thérèse.
