Champagnat’s dream in the forest continues

“Dear young people, on this day of dreaming in the forest, we have a unique opportunity to evaluate our degree of communion with nature, with others, with ourselves and with God.” Thus started the fictitious letter from Marcellin that had been complied by the organising committee of Marist Camp at Rawdon, (Quebec – Canada) to experience the “2nd Day of Champagnat’s dream in the forest.”

Some sixty young people from the region of Montreal experienced a day of dreaming in the enchanting environment of Lake Morgan. The theme of the day had been chosen from the song “You raise me up!” which can be found on the “One heart, one mission” CD. The icon of Saint Marcellin Champagnat holding a child on his shoulders was used for this special day.
“I am conscious that such a dream cannot be realised alone. Faced with difficulties and obstacles we need to feel ourselves shouldered in order to make progress. We need to experience help, fraternal sharing, profound solidarity; all of that is a source of life which helps us to overcome challenges.”

The main activity on this first day of July 2006 for the participants of this Marist Camp was a long “treasure hunt” in the mountains surrounding Lake Morgan.
