"DEVENIR UN EN CHRIST" TODAY

Devenir Un En Christ is an association founded in 1986 by Michael and Marie-Françoise Jamet.

Our mission:

To welcome people concerned by homosexuality (single, living as a couple, married, parents, priests or religious) and
to facilitate, in an atmosphere of respect and trust, the human and spiritual development of each person in whatever
situation they find themselves.

God loves us unconditionally and we are called to live our lives to the full. Animated by this conviction, the association offers
to each person the possibility to walk along the path of faith towards greater interior peace :

ø By providing a place of unconditional Christian listening.
ø By allowing each person to be themselves and to freely discuss questions with people who are living with similar experiences.
ø By providing opportunities to reflect on our faith and our role in the church.
ø By exploring together the impact of the Gospel on our daily lives.
ø By sharing the stories of our own journeys.

Occasionally, Devenir Un En Christ also participates with other associations in ecumenical and inter-religious celebrations
of prayer .

« We are the body of Christ, each of us is part of this body.
Everyone receives grace from the Holy Spirit for the good of the entire body »
