Barat Spirituality Centre is a ministry of the Religious of the Sacred Heart. We are located directly across from the Public Gardens of Halifax. There is easy access to the Centre by various bus lines and there is street parking in the area.

The Religious of the Sacred Heart have been in Halifax since 1849. The congregation was founded by Saint Madeleine Sophie Barat in France in 1800. We are present in more than 40 countries around the world and engaged in ministries centred on our charism: To discover and reveal the love of the Heart of Jesus. This includes retreat houses, formal schools, popular education, and a whole range of other works in collaboration with others. Together, trusting in God, we seek to make this Love known and manifest.
