With the existential questions that anyone searching for a life of authenticity and liberty faces, these retreats introduce the experience of God at the heart of our beings, at the heart of the world, and in doing so offer the possibility for a true Meeting.
Through animated presentations of the Gospel, its biblical roots and the importance accorded to Mary, Mother of the Church, these retreats, strengthen and revive the call of our Living God in each person who attends. “Come and learn to live with Me!”
These retreats are recommended as a good place to start.
A special moment to learn, just like the first disciples and evangelists, who received the revelation, welcomed it and found the meaning of their existence.
What do they have to offer to make our faith burn with fervour? How do we, in their image, become happy witnesses who welcome the Holy Spirit, and carry out his work in today’s world? This is the challenge of spreading the Gospel.
I am the light of the world: he that follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. John 8,12
In our busy lives, with loaded work schedules and ever less personal space, this 2 or 3-day retreat, in silence, listening to the gospel offers an opportunity to breathe deeply, see life from a different perspective and get back to the essence of our faith.
Would you like a tangible experience of living the Gospel day-to-day? The community is happy to throw open our doors and share our experience of life with Christ.
We have taken note of a thirst for true inner silence and real exchanges in the most ordinary of days, so we are offering these six-day retreats with the community where time alone and as a group listening to biblical text will be intertwined with time for work and time for rest, time for silence and time for conversation... one within the other, one alongside the other!
As the days pass, each person will discover what is good for them. The Word of God will take its place: read, listened to, received, shared, it will be the nourishment that gives meaning and impetus to each day.
A beautiful invitation to experience a new kind of ordinary. Experiencing a taste of what Nazarene life has to offer, a life with Christ and the simplicity of a life of shared faith!
To participate in this retreat we recommend that you have already attended a retreat or a weekend stay at Roche d'Or or Fontanilles.
A simple, practical introduction to the culture of the Bible, accessible to all. Everyone can understand how the bible was constructed over time, learn to read it, understand it and see the challenges for our faith.
We do not always pay attention to the fact that the book of the bible is, in human culture and as far back as we can go, a unique event! Bruno Barral
Would you like to discover the daily life of the community while helping to maintain and improve the park and houses? The community would be delighted to welcome you for six days on retreat, to share with you how we work, spend time enjoying meals and conversations together, and work together on the work of the Holy Spirit within us and in His creation. Ecology of the heart!
The morning Eucharist and discussions at the end of the day invite everyone to live with the word as they go about their varied activities. These retreats are like a school for learning to live your daily life in a new way!
Whatever your age, physical ability or skill there’s a place for you and a way for you to take part in the activities on offer.
The community offers walking retreats in the Holy Land, the roots of our faith, following in the footsteps of St Paul in Greece, in Assisi at the school of St François, in Lourdes...
These retreats are about walking, seeing, feeling, resting, tasting a “living earth” that never stops shining its mystery rooted in centuries of history...
Listening to the Word in the place of the Revelation and evangelisation; conversations, sharing, the support of the community, make this a true path for taking what you’ve learned through several retreats in La Roche d’Or or Fontanilles further.
