FCJ Young Adult Network

The FCJ Young Adult network is a way for the many young people who have a link with the Sisters Faithful Companions of Jesus or Ignatian spirituality to keep in contact with the FCJ Society, with each other, and with the wider FCJ Family.

Find out about events, news, and people from across the world who are part of the FCJ family!


We run a variety of events for young adults: pilgrimages, retreats, groups that attend youth festivals, discernment weekends, or community live-in experiences. Check below what is coming up in 2020!

Are you a past FCJ student? – our schools include Upton Hall, Gumley House Convent, Bellerive FCJ, Maria Fidelis, FCJ Primary (Jersey), Notre Dame de France, Genazzano, St Philomena, Benalla FCJ.

Maybe you met us at your university chaplaincy? – FCJ Sisters are part of the chaplaincy teams at Goldsmiths University, London Southbank University (St Hilda’s Catholic Chaplaincy House), Manchester Universities and Liverpool University.
