Salesian spirituality is characterized by the gospel-based ”little virtues” of gentleness, patience, humility and liberty of spirit, to name a few. It is named “Salesian” in reference to St. Francis de Sales, who, along with St. Jane de Chantal, co-founded the Visitation order.
The Salesian Studies program exists to help nourish, deepen and extend the charism of St. Jane de Chantal and St. Francis de Sales within our school community and beyond. The program director achieves this mission by mentoring faculty and staff, co-coordinating masses and prayer services with the Campus Minister, introducing parents to the richness of Salesian spirituality, and partnering with teachers on ways to infuse their curricula with Salesian ideals and lessons.
Virtue for 2018-19: Interiority
Each year, our students and educators are asked to focus on a particular Salesian virtue. We turn to St. Francis de Sales for our companion quote for the year, "Invite Jesus Christ into your heart and He will show in all your actions."
On the first Friday of each month, the Sisters invite you to join them for Mass at 11:40 a.m. During that day, Eucharistic Adoration will be available in the Sisters' Chapel from 8 a.m. - 2:15 p.m.
Spend time in quiet prayer before the Blessed Sacrament or consider being a regular adorer. Sign up here.
Contact Anne Williams via email or at 615-683-1734 for more information or to sign up for a regular prayer time.
Each Wednesday, Visitation students pray a decade of the Rosary in the Sisters' Chapel at 7:50 a.m.
"Great opportunities to please God come along rarely, but turning life's ordinary deeds into moments of great praise to God can happen frequently." - St. Francis de Sales
