The retreat takes place in Le Reposoir ("The Silence"), a small village below the Col de la Colombiere, on the road from Geneva from Mont Blanc, in a former mountain farmhouse. The house belongs to the Sacred Heart priests.
All those who wish to deepen their faith, reflect on their lives and experience intensive days of prayer are invited. In doing so, we want to hike together in the Mont Blanc massif and let the beauty of the Alps strengthen us on our journey of faith and life.
