Between Christmas and the new year some go on vacation on the snow (when there is any!), others use this time to be with their family. Our community, works! Beautiful, isn’t!
We’ve taken this period of festivities to ourselves, to review the past year and to prepare the upcoming year.
From December 29 to January 2, we were able to review all the groups that will come to us in Aix in 2016. There will be some very important sessions, in which we are directly engaged: Youth Congress in March, Congress on vocations in July, Scholastics Summer Session in August, the De Mazenod Experience in French in September and October. There are also many groups coming from the four corners of the world that we have to welcome and accommodate this year.
During this period, we also took time to review our community life, our various commitments in the House and in the Diocese.
Exhausted but happy, we took Monday January 4 for a community outing in Nice and Éze, it was a very fraternal day spent with our Oblate brothers in Nice, it was also a touristic, beautiful sunny day despite the weather forecast!
