As the week unfolds, participants will visit the places of origins in Le Puy such as the First Kitchen, the Archives, the Cathedral, l'Eglise du College and Place Martouret. This will be interspersed with input, reflection, sharing and prayer.
There will also be visits to Bas-en-Basset, Monistrol and St. Didier and then visit significant places in Lyon, the Heritage Room, the CSJL Chapel, the Basilica of Fourvière, and Mother St. John's gravesite.
This pilgrimage will help participants discover God's active presence in the first sisters, as well as the grace that moved Fr. Médaille and Bishop de Maupas to accept and promote these first women. It will also lead participants to sense God's active presence in their own lives and help them to identify and deepen the mission and charism already alive within them.
