The retreat seeks to discover the Foundations of L’Arche: firstly, the physical foundations in the village of Trosly itself where the first house of L’Arche opened 55 years ago in August, 1964. The retreatants will visit the village and workshops of L’Arche and hear something about the beginnings and the history of L’Arche. The second part of the week will focus more on the spiritual foundations of L’Arche with 2 ½ days of a silent retreat.

During the session, there will be walks, visits, encounters, lectures, a possibility to join Eucharistic celebrations, times of individual and group prayer, sharing and meditation. You will also be able to take part in evening celebrations and sharing sessions.

From Sunday 20th September (19h15) to Friday 25th September 2020 (after lunch, 14h00)
