Retreat 2017

Retreat in Jacksonville

The retreat of the diocese of St. Augustine, Florida, will take place from May 20 to 24 at Camp St. John in Jacksonville.

This retreat will bring together some fifty people, including some core members of l'Arche. The theme is the line from scripture: "Everyone is looking for you", and involves the call of the disciples. As in past years, Sr. Maureen Kelley and Fr. Ron Camarda are the main animators.

In this year of the 50th, let us stay in communion with all Faith and Sharing communities. May the Spirit be present at the Jacksonville Retreat!

50 years of Faith and Sharing

50th: Meeting in Brossard (Quebec)

Former participants of the Saint-Jean-Longueuil group will meet at Marie-Thérèse Rancourt home Friday evening, February 9, to pray and remember the beautiful moments experienced during their meetings. For example: a participant said that at her first visit, the theme was forgiveness; she was still impregnated with this grace.

Marie-Thérèse and her late husband Léo were active at Faith and Sharing, and in charge of their group in the diocese of Saint-Jean-Longueuil for several years, hosting a bi-weekly prayer evening and organizing retreats.

The North American Committee invites you to publicize your activities in connection with the 50th. They will be published on the web page:
Page of the 50th

Let us give thanks for all the blessings of these 50 years!
