25-26 January 2019
Join us for our Men’s Retreat led by Pastor Tim Vance, 25-26 January 2019, as we explore how we can, as men, be engaged witnesses and contributors in our world today. This will be a special 24 hours of sharing, praying, laughing and celebrating what God is doing in our lives as friends, mentors, fathers, sons and husbands. Every man is invited to be part of this special time together. This is a fantastic opportunity to connect while learning, worshipping and relaxing together.
The retreat will take place at the Orsay Clarté Dieu retreat center in Orsay (91) – a 30 min RER ride from Gare Saint Michel Notre Dame to the Orsay-ville station.
Participants will be greeted at the station on Friday evening and taken to the Clarté Dieu by shuttle starting at 6pm where we will have a pot-luck welcome apéritif. After dinner, we will have a time of teaching, followed by an evening of fellowship, music and songs around a bonfire or games depending on the weather. Saturday morning, we’ll begin the day with an open prayer time, before a hearty breakfast and launching into a morning of teaching and small groups.
After lunch, there will be time for games (including our much acclaimed pétanque contest) and walking in the nearby forest. This is also a time to simply rest, meditate and relax in the park of Clarté Dieu or in its cloister. We will then join for further teaching and reflection time, before we close our retreat in worship together. Shuttles will be available from 6pm to transport participants from the Centre to the Orsay-ville station.
The retreat will cost €75 for each participant. This price includes all meals, 1 night’s accommodation in a single room, sheets, and shuttle from the Orsay-ville station. Please do not let money keep you from joining us for this retreat. Scholarships are available, please contact the ACP pastoral staff for further information.
What to Bring
A Bible, pen and paper; a bath towel and your toothbrush! Participants are also invited to bring extra beverages and food for the pot luck fellowship times and bonfire, if they wish.
