Brest - France. March 15 to 17th. 2019
From 15th to 17th March,  Fr. James  and team preached a charismatic retreat at 'Eglise Saint Jacques'  in Brest-France by the invitation of Bishop Mgr Laurent DOGNIN. It was organised by Maryvonne Lavalloir & Patricia Brassart Paulhiac in the Catholic association' Fontaine D'Eau Vive', with the able support &  guidance of the Parish Priest Jean Baptiste GLESS and other volunteers. On the first day Fr. James released his new book book named " Ten moments Jesus shed His Blood" ( in French)  by giving the first copy to to Fr. Jean Baptiste, the parish priest.  Fr. James and Dr. Richie preached on the subject " Sanctify yourselves today, tomorrow you will see miracles" ( Joshua 3.5). In fact, the whole retreat was in the context of the Lent - it was really an opportunity for the participants to experience the fruits of the passion of Jesus Christ! Both Fr. James. and Dr. Richie gave very powerful talks focussing on the Passion of Christ that helped  the participants for a new life by repentance & conversion. Sr. Gaby Landauro gave her testimony of life with emphasis on consecration. Maryvonne also shared her testimony about her conversion and new life in her retreat with Fr. James at Lourdes and  how she started organising retreats for him in France. All the talks and prayers were beautifully translated by Vincent Maduraud. On the second day, Sunday, the Parish priest Fr. Jean Baptiste GLESS  presided the concelebration of the mass. On the last day, Sunday, the Vicar general of the diocese Rt. Rev Fr. Alain Guellec presided over the concelebrated mass and preached.  Mr. Jacques Comand and Miss Marianne Vertommen consecrated their lives for holiness in Charis Marian Covenant Community on the second day during the mass..There were several priests to hear confessions on all days and to concelebrate the Holy Mass. Many people shared  testimonies of conversion, healing and new life. Fr. James prayed over each participant of the retreat on Sunday morning.Here are some photos and videos:-
