A First Announcement experience,
(but not only a first announcement)
to young people, today

I send you
(Gv 20,21)

"Some young men cry to have something.
A lot of them cry because they need somebody.
The only answer to this shout can be found in hearts who want to understand,
who have intelligence to understand people
and who have no fear to commit themselves neither to walk
in this bewilderment and confusion world:
in this obscure world that covers a deeper world of light."
(Jean Vanier)

Proposal is an experience of three days (from Thursday afternoon to Sunday afternoon) who offers to young people a personal growth moment through announcement of fundamental values of Christian life, fraternal sharing and sacraments celebration.

Proposal, finally, want to be a little spark of light destined to light up our walk toward the Friend who live in us, by heating him.
