"No Longer Strangers"
Led by Dan and Fran Michalek
7-9 June at Abbaye-Fleury
You are invited to a special time away for rest, relaxation, spiritual renewal and community. On 7-9 June 2019 ACP will return to the Abbaye-Fleury, a historic Benedictine monastery on the banks of the Loire River about two hours from Paris.
The theme of the retreat will be "No Longer Strangers" and will be led by ACP’s Visiting Pastor Dan Michalek and Fran Michalek.
He came and proclaimed peace to you who were far off and peace to those who were near; for through him both of us have access in one Spirit to the Father. So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are citizens with the saints and also members of the household of God ... Ephesians 2:17-19
Location: l'Abbaye de Fleury, Saint-Benoît-sur-Loire.
The monastery at Saint-Benoît-sur-Loire began around 630 A.D. A century later the monks from this monastery brought the remains of Saint Benedict back from Italy. Saint Benedict is the author of the rule for the life of monks known as the “Rule of Saint Benedict,” which is still a source of inspiration for Christians all over the world. The beautiful basilica there dates from the 11th and 12th centuries. Each day it still resounds to the chants of the monks and the numerous faithful. This beautiful setting is on the Loire River, about 2 hours + from Paris.
Accommodations: Rooms have two single beds each; they are airy, clean and colorfully painted. Bathrooms and showers are down the hall. Singles are available. Bring towels and soap.
