On March 12, 2015, the group of “Veilleurs de la fraternité” under the patronage of the Oblate Missionaries invited the parishes from the city centre and numerous associations from Aix-en-Provence, in order to exchange ideas and information regarding diaconie.
Present among others were: the Episcopal Vicar for the deanery of Aix-en-Provence and Gardanne, the parishes of Notre Dame de l’Arc, Saint-André, Saint-Jérome, the Cathedral, Saint-Jean de Malte, the Secour Catholique, the Order of Malta, the Halte de Jour Germain Nouveau, the Evangelical service for the sick, Saint-Vincent de Paul, Halte Vincent, the Relais Saint-Martin, the Blue Cross and Pause-Toit.
The « Frat-Oser » (group of students housed in the Oblate community) participated as well in this meeting, since this year they wish to be involved with a project in favour of one these associations.
Representatives of different parishes or associations presented their multiple projects which lead to a fruitful sharing and discussion. Another meeting is planned for the near future.
