La Neylière renovations blessed

In ceremonies over the weekend of Sep 12-13, the recently-completed renovations at La Neylière, France, were blessed by His Eminence, Cardinal Philippe Barbarin.

As archbishop of the diocese in which Fr Jean-Claude Colin died, Cardinal Barbarin is a key figure in presenting the Beatification Cause of Fr Colin to Rome. During the ceremonies he paused in prayer at the tomb of Fr Colin.0915-La-Neyl-blessing-2
