Young Adult Conference in Paris
February 2017


Emer Gallagher and Karen Wynne attended the Paris Young Adult Conference in Paris o 25-27th November 2016 on behalf of Concilium.
On Friday they visited the Chapels of Rue du Bac and St. Vincent de Paul and later went to Mass in St. Germain des Pres Church and were surprised by the number of young people at Mass. They decided to promote the Conference after Mass. The young people were very receptive.
The venue for the Conference was Al’ Acueil Barouillere, rue Saint Jean Baptiste de la Salle. In the morning session there was a talk on St. Louis Marie de Montfort by Bro. Hubert. Questions followed, then testimonies by Emer, Karen and Alex and a video on the True Devotion. Carlito ended the session with a song. After lunch there were Chants by Carlito and a video on the history of the Miraculous Medal and discussion time. Mass followed in the Rue du Bac Chapel. Because of the Feast of the Miraculous, blessed medals were given out after Mass.

Quote of the Day
As priests we are called to lead people to holiness: this is what we are called to do: it is at the heart of the Legion’s teaching and system, and is what we see first of all in Edel’s life.

She got it right. At the heart of her day was prayer, and at the heart of that was the Eucharist – Mass and Adoration.
Fr. John Hogan, Diocese of Meath
