This program has been especially requested by Principals, Teachers and Educators within the Chevalier Family, who wish to deepen their knowledge of Jules Chevalier ~ his life, spirituality and mission. It is also designed to develop further appreciation for our contemporary Spirituality of the Heart ~ what richness it has to offer to young people, families and educational communities in this 21st century. Pilgrim visits throughout Issoudun itself, and places of significance to the Chevalier story nearby, are special features of the experience. The principle language for this program will be English.
This session gives members of the Chevalier Family, both lay and vowed, the opportunity of a refreshed encounter with the person, life, charism, spirituality and mission of Jules Chevalier. Visits to places connected with Fr. Chevalier in Issoudun, Richelieu, Bourges and Paray-le-Monial are a special feature. Conferences, reflections, and sharing centred on a contemporary understanding of our Spirituality of the Heart for the world today, are also significant aspects of this program. Presented in the light of the reality of life and ministry in the 21st century, all aspects of this program challenge and re-energize! A retreat during the third week helps participants personally integrate their experience in a supportive, prayerful atmosphere.
Languages: English, French and the possibility of 2 other languages. The first two languages that register at least three participants will be the additional languages for this program in 2013.
