Last Tuesday the first meeting of the youth group took place at the Oblate community house in Aix. As from now, we will be meeting every Tuesday evening.
To fully live the Lenten Season, we have decided to live it together as a group of young people with the Oblates. These Tuesday prayer meetings will prepare us to visit the elderly, the sick and the disabled people bringing them Holy Communion during Holy week.
Why bring communion to these people? Because this can be for us a great missionary adventure! Inspired by the example of St. Eugene de Mazenod, we have a desire to live the Oblate charism, we want, during this time of Lent, to go towards the poor and the sick and bring them our help and our support in Christ! We do this being sent as missionaries together with the Oblate community.
How to prepare for this mission? The preparation is done through prayer and sharing the word of God. It is for this reason that we invite all the youth in Aix to come and join us every Tuesday as from February 16, from 19h15 to 19h45, at 56 cours Mirabeau.
