A place that welcomes, comforts and shares
The House of Spirituality of Valeggio: a place that welcomes, reassures and shares

The Mater Divinae Sapientiae Spirituality House takes its name from a natural spring located at the foot of a hill near the house where, from ancient times, the inhabitants of the surrounding districts served themselves. The community of the nuns of Don Nicola Mazza, arriving in this place in 1966, to open the novitiate and a house of spirituality also found the image of the Madonna that on the centenary of the apparitions in Lourdes, (1858 - 1958) the families of the parish of Santa Lucia ai Monti (Valeggio sul Mincio) had prayed during the pilgrimage and to which they wanted to dedicate a capital. To the nuns of Don Nicola Mazza it seemed that near the Fontanafredda spring it was the most suitable place to build this capital dedicated to Our Lady of Lourdes, entrusting her with the life of the novitiate and the house of spirituality.

House that welcomes groups that work in pastoral animation, groups who want to meet to plan or verify a common journey, youth groups who want to experience a moment of fraternal sharing, individuals who wish to participate in the life of the community.

House that shares moments of encounter and research, of personal and community prayer, of listening to the Word, of confrontation and dialogue, of fraternity and celebration.

House that refreshes through the harmony of nature and the beauty of its corners, the simplicity of life and the charm of silence.
