Hospitality

Several times a year we invite you to spiritual retreats at Hirschthal, a small village on the German-French border.

Hospitality

Spiritual retreats can be a break from everyday life, a time for reflection, a place of community, a way to encounter God.

A short verse from the Bible accompanies us throughout the day. Several times a day we gather for common prayer.
