Trip to Le Puy-en-Velay, France

Become a Neighbour; Peace Depends on it

A young adult gathering in Le Puy-en-Velay, France
from August 2 to 12, 2009

A number of young adults from different countries  are invited to meet one another so that together they may search out ways of building a future that is more peaceful. more just and more human for all peoples.

The theme of this gathering is:  Become a Neighbour; Peace Depends on it

  • in a world that is torn by wars and ethnic conflicts
  • in a world where rugged individualism surpasses the common good
  • in a world full of crises of identity
  • in a world which is destroying the planet which gives life to us all
  • in a world where everyone is searching for meaning . . .

We, the Sisters of St. Joseph, represented by our International Centre in Le Puy-en-Velay in France, believe that a respectful exchange between persons of various races and cultures is possible and fruitful, and that such exchanges help to build relationships of justice, respect and peace among all people.

During this programme there will be time to share your hopes and dreams, your values, your questions, your particular experience of God, of others and of our created world.  The Gospel and the spirituality and charism of the Sisters of St. Joseph will help to shed light on the important questions facing our world today. 

If you are interested in this opportunity please contact Sr. Thérèse Meunier ASAP as the registration deadline is quickly approaching.
