During 18 months, Patrice lived in a poor quarter of Lima (Barrios Altos close to the centre of town) serving the poor and the street children.

Bishop Marc taught on the season of Advent, Saturday 24 November
Main topic: Light of Christ in the Darkness. Bishop Marc showed the natural link between the liturgical cycle and the cosmic cycle. After the agape, the retreatants (about 30 people), walked in a nearby forest. Then, Mgr Marc closed the retreat by paralleling the inhaling and exhaling of the prayer of the heart with the solar cycle of the year. Periodic updates.
