On August 3, 2013 a group of teenage girls and their mothers participated in a tour organized by JMP–L. The objective of the program was to give the opportunity to the girls to spend time and develop further closeness with their mothers, and to have time for the Lord, for themselves, and for each other.
The first stop was Mount Harissa, which is home to an important Lebanese pilgrimage site, a huge statue of Virgin Mary known as “Our Lady of Lebanon.” The participants arrived at the top of the mountain by means of the cable cars (or “Téléférique”) from the coastal city of Jounieh.
“For once, it’s good to feel what ‘tourism’ means!” exclaimed a teen’s mom! “The company of my mom could be and is really enjoyable!” said a teen.
The second stop was at the Convent of Bzommar, where the group had the opportunity to spend a spiritually rich time together.
And finally, the group dined at Burger King, where a daylong program of recreation and fellowship, which helped enhance the trust and intimacy among the participants, came to an end.
