Tracing Marcellin Champagnat's Footsteps in Paris

On Tuesday, 30 March we visited the Church of Saint-Sulpice where Marcellin prayed during his visits to Paris, the Chapel of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal where Mary appeared three times to Catherine Laboure in 1830, the Foreign Missions Seminary where Marcellin stayed during his visits to Paris seeking legal authorisation for his fledgling Congregation and the Place of Fr Marcellin Champagnat near Passy, officially named on 24 October 1981.
