Sacerdotal Retreat 2019

at the sanctuary of Our Lady of Lourdes

For six years now, the Community of Saint-Martin has organized a priestly retreat at the sanctuary of Our Lady of Lourdes. Some 60 diocesan priests and 30 priests from the community participated this year.

This year the priests gathered around the Abbot  of the Benedictine abbey of Saint Wandrille: Dom Jean-Charles Nault. The retreat was articulated around the theme: “taste and see how good is the Lord”. For a week the retreaters were taught on this theme. This allowed them to rediscover that reality and to give them a new momentum to their priestly life. They also benefited from prayer, meditation, conversation and fraternal exchange. The retreat completed, they returned, not without joy, in their ministry.

In three words: a refreshing retreat, nourishing, and recollected! “
