"Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest" Matt 11:28
A retreat is an intentional time taken to step back from the milieu and business of everyday life and go to a place to connect with God.
"Be still and know that I am God" Ps 46:10
The Sanctuary of Fourvière provides a place where pilgrims can deepen their relationship with God, particularly through the living encounter with the Beatitudes Community.
The Community share the beauty of their charism and their liturgical rhythm of prayer, inviting each person to
‘taste and see that the Lord is good’.
Retreats at the Sanctuary of Fourvière may be for you as an individual or for your family or group. Retreats may be guided or unguided, silent or non-silent. Talk to us about your needs.

Is a retreat for me?
You might be in need of a retreat if you are:
Someone overcome by the world – feeling dry, dead, exhausted,
Someone on the path of discovery – at the beginning of a spiritual journey,
Someone without faith – but intrigued by the experience,
Someone with faith - seeking the space to hear God’s voice,
Someone young, in need of being listened to, understood or mentored,
Someone older, a mother or father – for a beautiful place to rest and pray,
A priest, pastor or religious – to rediscover their first love,
Someone leading a school or youth group - to experience the beauty of a living encounter,
A leader of a parish groups - to deepen your journey as disciples,
You - in your deepest spiritual thirst and need.
