About us

The FCJ Centre in Brussels opened in autumn 2005. Our aim is to accompany individuals and groups on their spiritual journey. It provides a welcoming environment and a variety of activities conducive to human and spiritual growth. The FCJ Centre team members have extensive experience in working with groups and individuals and a passion for sharing with others in our common search for meaning.

The Society of Sisters Faithful Companions of Jesus was founded by Marie Madeleine D’Houet (1781 – 1858). Inspired by the Holy Women of the Gospel, whose calling was to serve and accompany Jesus, she committed her life to God through the ministry of education, retreats and missions. Today the FCJ Sisters are an international congregation of women, serving around the world, with a variety of ministries.

The FCJ Sisters arrived in Belgium in 1902 where they set up communities and established schools, including St. John’s International School in Waterloo in 1964. To read the full mission statement of the FCJ Centre, click here
