Different priories regularly organise sessions for families, in particular the priories of Murat, Corbara and Cotignac.
The sessions for families are organised and led by the Brothers and Apostolic Sisters of Saint John. They run for approximately one week during the summer and are aimed at families who want to include a spiritual dimension in their holidays. There is teaching on offer for parents, and activities are organised for children by age group. Time for relaxation is planned for the afternoons (walks, swimming, etc.). Each day includes Mass and time for prayer. The balance between holiday and time for spiritual renewal responds to the hopes and wishes of the families who participate: in a relaxed and holiday-like atmosphere parents and children alike can renew their Christian life personally and together as a family.
