This looks like fun - La Week OP
Every August, the Toulouse province of Dominicans (friars and sisters) does a week of beach evangelization.
From August 8th to the 15th, Dominican friars and sisters came together at the beach to provide prayer and fraternity with a group of students and young professionals. The theme for the week was, appropriately: the treasure hidden in the sands. In addition to evenings at the cafe and beach volleyball, the friars offered a substantial serving of prayer and catechesis. Lauds (Morning Prayer) and Vespers (Evening Prayer) were prayed each day. In addition, there was a daily morning conference. The subjects of the conferences included: Dieu Un et Trine: invention des théologiens? [God One and Triune, Invention of Theologians?], L’homme créé à l’image de Dieu : le christianisme est-il une religion de la grandeur humaine? [Man created in the image of God: Is Christianity a religion of human greatness?]; and Dieu-fait-homme: a-t-on besoin du Christ pour entrer en relations avec Dieu? [God made man: Does one need Christ to be in relation with God?].
During the week, there was also time for prayer before the Blessed Sacrament. There were also devotions to the Blessed Virgin Mary, especially in honor of the Feast of her Assumption, which concluded the week.
Of course, every week is La Week OP when one is privileged to work with such stellar Dominicans as Fr. Mike and Br. Matthew, mais oui?
