Work activities are organised for the mornings and in the afternoons meetings are planned to discuss the Bible as well as the opportunity of meeting with some of the brothers and sisters of the community.
We have completely renewed the section of our website offered to young people, in which we propose texts in order to help them searching for the sense of their life.
You can find also presentations of the future events: workcamps, autumn meetings and meetings organized in the last days of the year. These pages are intended to be a space of dialogue. You can contact the brothers and sisters in charge of the hospitality who arrange these pages, making your suggestions and asking your questions.

Message to young people
First and last alike, receive your reward. For the Lord is gracious and receives the last no less than the first
Meeting Christ and adhering to him implies fractures and cuts: “No one can serve two masters... You can’t serve both God and Mammon.” (Mt 6:24).
Message to young people
Be oppressed, but not an oppressor; be crucified, but not a crucifier; be outraged, but not an outrager; be defamed, but not a defamer
The Letter to Titus urges young people to think (Titus 2:6), to reflect so as to acquire wisdom and discernment. Certainly thinking, paying attention to our heart’s movements and thoughts that invade our mind, rereading the whole day at night, is not easy.
