Rereading my personal story in light of the Gospel.

After the devastating events of Jesus’ suffering, death and burial, the travellers on the road to Emmaus were hurting. But they came to see their story with completely new eyes when the risen Jesus walked alongside them, listening to them, putting their experience in a larger perspective and sharing the intimacy of a meal with them. Their mood was transformed from despondency to joy, from despair to hope. (cf.Luke 24:13-35)

Healing and transformation are part of the spiritual journey. The presenters of this retreat will offer stories of healing and transformation that will create a context for you to reflect on your own personal story. The retreat will include times of private prayer guided by focused questions and several sessions of small group sharing,

The retreat starts at 7:15 pm on Sunday 24th, October 2021.
It ends after breakfast, 9:30 am, on Saturday 30th, October 2021.

400€ per person and 700 € for a couple.
Solidarity price: up to 475€ per person and 825€ for a couple.

The “solidarity” rate contributes to our costs outside the sessions, and also allows us to welcome those facing financial difficulty. By giving a little more you contribute to fraternal sharing. If it is a serious difficulty for you to pay the full amount please discuss the matter with us before you register.
