To this end, we expect that everyone will follow all the protocols and guidelines that have been set out by CFMB, following the regulations of the government of Québec and its related institutions. If at any time you feel these protocols are not being followed please notify the Director immediately.
Thank you and we look forward to seeing you soon at the Manoir de Beaujeu !
If you have registered for an activity that has been cancelled, we encourage you to re-register for an activity in the fall of 2020. Your payment or deposit will automatically be applied to that event.
We apologize for the inconvenience and disappointment this may cause and we hope you will enjoy a retreat in the near future. We take advantage of this announcement to offer you a couple of articles that provide practical guidelines for confronting this extraordinary situation. The first one is a pastoral letter by Monsignor Fernando Ocáriz
, the Prelate of Opus Dei. The second one is entitled Growing on the inside
and offers tips on how to face the quarantine.
