Dans les traces Dominicaines à Paris
Body: 

Paris is the city for tourists, a beautiful city, but also a place where faith is visible, a city for pilgrimage.

Dominican brothers and sisters did their daily rounds there even after the Middle Ages, and their footsteps are always there, because we the Dominicans, male and female, are always here.

Every year, thousands of tourists visit Paris to admire the beauty of the place. However, Paris is something else as well. To live your faith in Paris is worth your trouble, as King Henry IV said, “Paris is well worth a Mass!”

People have come here for centuries to leave traces of their prayers in her numerous churches.

During our stay in Paris, we will explore the Dominican places as others have done before us, and visit pilgrimage sites where they have left traces of their faith.

We are also going to walk a lot, so bring your best walking shoes!
