Camille's editorial of July 11, 2022: A day at the Jesus Festival


The first edition of the Jesus Festival took place last weekend in Paray-Le-Monial. For three days, nearly 4 Christians of all ages and different denominations, Evangelicals, Catholics and Protestants celebrated the name of Jesus together.

A joyful and family event centered on Jesus! About twenty international and French-speaking artists such as Collectifs Cieux Ouvertes, Matt Maher, Glorious, Hillsong London or even Hopen were there to make the festival-goers dance and sing.
