GATHERING AT THE CAVE

At dawn on 13 July and after a “night vigil” in the Basilica of Montserrat, we will begin a community pilgrimage from Montserrat to the Cave in Manresa.

It will be a moment of self-discover and discovery of other alumni from all over the world who, following in the footsteps of the route that St. Ignatius took 500 years ago, will help us to begin a period of reflection and recollection. Thus we begin our preparation and readiness for the congress, which will take place in Barcelona in the following days.
