YOUNG ADULT CONFERENCE IN PARIS

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
Priests and lay persons are co-workers in the Lord's vineyard. Each of us was first of all baptised as a lay Christian.

As priests we should never forget that our roots are in an ecclesial community. Our vocation is the fruit of the nourishment of many lay persons: our parents and family members, our teachers, those who we encountered in our search for deeper faith.

Our priesthood was generated, in that sense, from within the community of the faith of lay persons. As priests we are called to minister to lay persons but we should never forget that we still learn much of the essence of the Christian message from the Christian lives of those to whom we minister.
Most Reverend Diarmuid Martin, Archbishop of Dublin
