Our community's main ministry is to be a
place of welcome for young people who
are seeking God in their lives. We try to provide opportunities for prayer and reflection for young adults, giving them a quiet space in which they can take time out from busy schedules to deepen their relationship with God.
We offer a chance
- to experience community life,
- have some spiritual accompaniment,
- explore Gap Year possibilities,
- consider religious vocation
We organise discernment weekends, walking retreats, bible reflections ...

The FCJ Sisters in Yogyakarta offer regular retreat and reflection days for young adults.They also organise the D'Houet Group (named after the family name of our foundress, Marie Madeleine). The purpose of the group is to help in vocation discernment by providing input, spiritual direction and peer support to young women who are seeking to know how they might be being called to live their life/what life is calling them to. The D'Houet group gives the opportunity to know FCJ sisters and to understand their life on mission a little better. The components of the process vary according to the needs of the participants. It can involve a ‘live-in’ and always involves spiritual accompaniment. Contact one of the communities in Indonesia to learn more.
