Retreat Donations

Fourviere Trust

Following the Monastic Tradition, we invite everyone who comes to Fourvière to give from their heart and according to their means.

Here are approximate costs for running Fourvière retreats. The amounts are suggested donations, as we want everyone to feel free to come to Fourvière and to give what they are able.

Every time you give over and above the suggested donation you are helping someone, who may be less fortunate, to enjoy a time of retreat here.
