The general assembly of the Pilgrims of Charity will be held on July 30 and 31, 2022 from 9 a.m. in Vézelay, Yonne
Vézelay is located 2h30 from Paris by train. This very beautiful site is called the "eternal hill", dominated by a large 11th century basilica, housing the relics of Saint Mary Magdalene.
At the foot of this basilica, about 2 km away, by a small path, you reach the Ermitage de la Cordelle. This is where the first Franciscan fraternity in France was founded in 1220.
This is the reason why we offer you this spiritual high place to immerse ourselves in the roots of our vocation.
We will meet again on Saturday morning, for a day devoted to reunions, sharing and recalling the different values of the pilgrims of charity.
On Sunday, our general assembly will take place, between 9 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.

Pope Francis celebrated Christmas Mass on Tuesday evening December 24, 2019 by evoking “unconditional” love and
"Free" in the face of market logic, during its traditional Christmas homily in front of thousands of worshipers.
"Christmas reminds us that God continues to love everyone, even the worst"
"His love is unconditional" even if "you may have wrong ideas",
insisted the pope, stressing that it is "the gratuitousness" of this type of love that "spreads peace and joy".
