Our Community

Living together

To be human is to be on a journey and to be a Christian means that we never journey alone” Adele Gonzalez, “The Spirituality of Community”. “For in one spirit we were all baptized into one body” 1Co 12:12Every community, in coordinating its activities, favours those elements which aid togetherness (RL 39.3)

Community Members 2012

Our community is a microcosm of different cultures. We treasure our life in such a cross-cultural community as a gift and as a challenge. We learn to appreciate each other and to discover the uniqueness of the values that everyone carries.

We follow a schedule below and we appreciate very much as a sign of respect for each member of the community responsibility and punctuality.
