Sophie’s Well: A Center for Sacred Heart Spirituality is acollaborative center for spirituality programs, staffed by a core team of three RSCJ: Kathy McGrath, Jane O’Shaughnessy and Mary Pat White.

Sophie’s Well also includes a collaborative group of about 40 spiritual companions – RSCJ, former RSCJ and Associates – who work with the core team on retreats and training in Sacred Heart schools, at the provincial office and internationally.

All reside throughout the United States and Canada and meet virtually, regularly, while occasionally, they meet together face-to-face. “Our mission is to help one to an encounter with God and deepen one’s relationship with God,” said Sister O’Shaughnessy. At this time, the main work of Sophie’s Well is to provide Busy Person’s Retreats to the Network of Sacred Heart Schools and provincial office. These are weeklong retreats, integrated into the flow of school or work, which involve daily prayer and meetings with a spiritual companion. Monthly spiritual direction also is a regular ministry is Sophie's Well.
