Retirement at the end of 2023

Around twenty retreatants met for 3 days to entrust the New Year to Mary.

Sister Sybille, an apostolic sister of Saint-Jean, taught us throughout the days on the theme of joy.

On Saturday, in addition to the lectures, there was recitation of the rosary, participation in vespers with the brothers of Saint-Jean, adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, and a time of sharing.

On Sunday, after the Eucharist and a hearty lunch, we went on pilgrimage to the Montbel grotto to lay down our intentions and our burdens. Back at the shrine, we prayed Vespers of St Mary Mother of God. After a good dinner, we had a prayer vigil with adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, which ended with a good hot chocolate/brioche, until the new year.
