Champagnat Study Tour/Pilgrimage



Twenty-two Marists from across Australia at Hermitage

22/04/2011: Australia

On April 10, twenty-two Marists from across Australia gathered in Paris for the Champagnat Study Tour/Pilgrimage under the leadership of Brothers Michael Green, National Director of MSA, Neville Solomon of the Hermitage Community and Peter Walsh, MLFT. After lengthy flights from Australia, the group gathered at the Citadines Hotel in striking distance of Place de la Bastille, Paris and commenced the course with Mass at the church of St Paul-St Louis in the heart of Paris. A meal to get to know each other followed at the Place Royal in the Marais district.

On the first morning, lectures by Michael Green on Why Paris? Its meaning for Champagnat and Neville Solomon on Enlightenment, Revolution and Restoration set the scene for the following days lectures on Marcellin’s Letter from Paris by Peter Walsh.

Saturday, 16th April, the Marist pilgrims, Brothers and Lay, gathered around the table at Lavalla where Marcellin and the first Brothers ate and worked. The event followed a visit to the chapel of Our Lady of Pity where Marcellin, and the pilgrims, prayed for vocations and a tour of the church and school at lavalla. We then gathered around the table for prayer and reflection on the life of Marcellin and the first Brothers.
