From July 3rd to 8th, there will be a spiritual retreat for families, led by the Gillinis and Father Giulio Michelini at the Domus Pacis in Assisi. This year, the course is based on Genesis and Song of Songs.
Hence, the course is Bible-oriented, but it encourages experiences and does not forget the existential side. There is no knowledge required, people will be accompanied in a journey to explore themselves during the meetings after an introduction of Father Giulio during the first evening, three speakers will intervene during the following days, and they will go through personal and family life observing it buy the light of the Word of God. Every day, there will be two meditations and a common meeting, mass will be celebrated daily.
As it happened during the previous years, a book about the course will be released. Up to now, there are the Book of Tobit (Tobit: The Fight Between the Demon and the Angel. Italian language); the Book of Esther (Ester, Queen of Israel, Italian language); the Book of Judges (The Book of Judges, Italian language); the couple Abraham and Sara (The Torà and Family Relations, Italian language).
The course will start with dinner on July 3rd and will and with breakfast on July 8th. The participation fee is €305 each (€355 for single room supplement); for children up to 14 years old, the fee is €50; children who are less than 4 have free entry. Organization will provide baby-sitting service during meetings and Masses.
