Living Stones in the Time of Quarantine…

 
 

Online Easter Triduum.

Given the situation we are living, this year the Spiritual Exercises during the Easter Triddum will unfortunately not take place. However, we are organising an online Easter Triduum for all those in Pietre Vive (and their families/flatmates). The proposal is:

– Thursday 9 April (vespers and Mass; reflection on the Last Supper): 16.45-19.30 CET.

– Friday 10 April (Via Crucis organised by 7 Living Stones Groups, Mass and sharing). 14.45-18.00 CET.

– Saturday 11 April (sharing 10.00-11.00, prayer 19.45-21.00 and 21:00 join the Pontifical Easter Vigil broadcast) CET.

– Easter Sunday (sharing in small groups): 16.45-19.30 CET.

We believe this would be an opportunity to nonetheless gather as one community and though in an unexpected way, still live these moments as a journey towards light and Easter with the Lord. We will be exploring the themes of Darkness, Silence and Light.

Info and registration segreteriapietrevive@gmail.com, the deadline for signing up is this Monday at midnight CET 😊

 

International Formation Camp, May 2020.

Given the “extraordinary” global situation, it will sadly NOT be taking place… at least not in a “real”, physical location. We are working on an alternative – but attention, this is not a replacement of the camp! If anything, through this “alternative” we might discover even more how vital these international meetings are to feel the breath of Living Stones. And also how much we miss them. At best, the online/virtual alternative we will be proposing in the coming days will only serve as a small sign of life – like a voice and a shadow maybe, of the real thing.
