Over the next two years, the Province of Italy and the International Society will undertake a project together to renovate the Villa Lante. The renovated Villa Lante will continue to provide a space for formation and expand its possibilities so that it can be an added support for the mission of the Society internationally.
The sixteenth-century Villa Lante in Trastevere is one of the Society’s most historically significant buildings. For nearly two centuries, it has been a place where the Sacred Heart sisters have retraced Madeleine Sophie’s footsteps. Learn more about its design and history here.

"We confide our sisters to St. Madeleine Sophie who understood so well how to “hold the Society” in times of great difficulty. We have placed a candle in front of Sophie’s picture in our front hall."
