Founded in 1837, St. Charles College is the site of the first Jesuit College in the South. Today, it functions as a Jesuit seminary and spirituality center. The massive brick structure was built in 1909 to replace the original, which was destroyed by fire. The extensive grounds include the dairy barn, another Grand Coteau landmark, which was used when the Jesuit College was a fully sustainable complex.
The Jesuit Spirituality Center offers a variety of retreats and workshops for men and women that focus on different spiritual practices. Events are available on the 3, 4, 8, and 30 of each month by reservation only. You can get a list of events on their website, JesuitSpiritualityCenter.org.
The grounds of the center are private and only available to registered guests or by appointment.
