St. Francis de Sales and St. Jane de Chantal

A deep and practical spirituality

The Visitation Order holds hidden treasures and resources for serious seekers of a deeply interior spiritual life.

Whether you are a lay person interested in plunging more fully into a way of daily devotion, or even considering a possible vocation to the monastic Visitandine tradition, we invite you to walk a spiritual avenue with our Founders, Saints and Sisters into the Love of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

Saint Francis de Sales, our Founder, was a Bishop and was named a Doctor of the Church, the “Doctor of Love,” in 1877. He emphasized a spirituality for the laity centuries ago and some of his writings will be presented for your guidance.

Our Foundress, Saint Jane de Chantal, was a wife, mother and widow before collaborating with her spiritual director, St. Francis de Sales, in establishing the Visitation. Her life and interior growth continues to provide an example to people today.

With our Holy Father, Pope Francis, and all religious, we are committed as Visitandines to “Wake Up the World!”
