Every year in April, The Chemin Neuf Community offers an eight-day silent ecumenical retreat designed to help participants experience the love of God more deeply to serve Christ more fully. Using the exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola during four periods of biblical contemplation each day, the images and sacred space of the Chartres Cathedral, and daily meetings with a spiritual director, retreatants explore their lives and faith as they seek to follow Jesus more closely and fully. While the many images from the cathedral speak in their own way, French is the language used for teaching and praying. It is my joy to serve on the leadership team of the retreat. Next year’s Retraite Cathédrale is tentatively scheduled for April 9-16, 2016. Perhaps God is inviting you to join us.
