The first part of the 2017 POITIERS SESSION concluded (brothers and sisters)

The first part of the 2017 Poitiers Session concluded with the celebration of the feast of Our Lady of Peace. The session began in Picpus, and for the last 8 days we have been getting to know the Church in the different countries of the participants, and the Church in which our Founders lived. From the challenges planted, we discovered how responses were given throughout the years. We continue being useful to the Church as our Founders did in their time and as we do now. It was a pilgrimage through the “holy places” of the Congregation, because as Alberto says, what is learned by walking, is never forgotten.

Today, the 9th July has been a Feast day. Jean-Pierre Cottanceau sscc, the recently named Archbishop of Papeete, presided at the Eucharist and at the end  he placed the statute of Our Lady of Peace on the heads of all present. The day ended with a festive, family meal with the brothers and sisters of  Picpus and Boissy.

On Monday the second part of the Meeting begins and this will take place in Belgium.
