GCL (CLC) Netherlands is organising a hiking retreat from June 30 to July 7. The theme of the retreat is “Sharing in God’s joy.” Members of CLC Europe are welcome. You can read the invitation in English and French. CVX Pays Bas organise une retraite prier-marcher.
As the theme of the retreat says we are invited for “Sharing in God’s joy” in “the land of the valleys”- near the city of Namur in the Belgian Ardennes – is the base of the Ignatian meditation center La Pairelle. The hiking retreat is a way to meet each other, for personal prayer in the Ignatian tradition and to enjoy the natural beauty of this region. If you are a member of a CLC group (or when you have interest to join one), you are welcome to register for this retreat.
You will receive texts and techniques for meditation and personal prayer (available in Dutch and French) each day. Part of the day is spent in silence. Every day you will make a challenging hike in a hilly landscape and you should therefore take into account light climbing and descending. A good walking condition and firm hiking shoes are required. In addition, you will need to take into account that a fairly tight daily schedule will be followed.
Accompaniment & organization: Ward Biemans SJ, ecclesiastical assistant for GCL Flanders and the Netherlands and members of GCL in the Netherlands and France.
Costs € 350, – including guide and full board, excluding travel to Namur and local travel expenses (approx € 30, -).
