Convivence (Retreat) with the first community of Jacmel

22 Jul

The Neocatechumenal Way came to Jacmel in May and, after a month of catechesis and convivence, the first community was called. Each week we gather to hear and share the Word of God.

On Sunday, July 21, we had our second convivence. We came to together to share Morning Prayer from the Liturgy of the Hours. The psalms were sung in French (a new challenge for Sr. Marilyn because she is now the cantor and guitar player), and all listened to the Word of God. After prayer, we shared a meal where everyone brings something–kind of like a “pot luck” meal. After we finished eating, we shared what this past month was like in our personal lives, especially as we have been walking the Way together. It was a blessed day. We all look forward to next Thursday when we meet again to share the Word of God.

” If today you hear the voice of the Lord, harden not your hearts!” Psalm 95

Teaching Jean Phillip and Annette how to play guitar so they can be cantors too.
