    Paths to Humanity - The strong commitment of our Francophone community

    "Dear friends of New York
    You cannot imagine how much your home, your openness, your commitment, your combativeness have been appreciated by our priests!
    What has been done there by your entire team can hardly be decribed... "
    Feedback from Paths to Humanity, Oct. 2016
    Early October, 11 priests in training with Paths to Humanity, came from France to meet with NY's Francophone professionals. Entrepreneurs, journalists, diplomats, professionals from the financial, decoration and non-profit sectors ... each took the time to welcome them in their professional environment and initiate a dialogue with the clergy on "our changing world".
    Hosted by the families of our francophone parish, this week was an opportunity for professional, personal, family and community encounters. The occasion of a truthful dialogue from which seems to emerge the warmth and the joy typical of great moments shared.
    We are looking forward to the coming of the 2017 promotion!
