To welcome priests and seminarians visiting Ars on a pilgrimage or for a retreat
The name "Foyer sacerdotal" represents all that is implied in catering for the spiritual and other needs of priests and seminarians on such a visit. They all co-habit in such a way that everyone feels spurred on to carry out the Church’s mission. Naturally, all that life revolves round the figure of the Holy Curé d’Ars.
The "Foyer sacerdotal" offers formations, study meetings and retreats. On their visit to Ars, the priests are deeply moved by the Holy Curé as a witness, and they are particularly impressed by his simplicity and the the radical way in which he gave his life for the conversion of his parishioners. Indeed, his pastoral charity highlights his whole ministry. As a matter of fact, we feel that it is precisely to receive this particular grace that priests come here.
