Come and see!

Like every year, December means for us the annual Assembly. If on the one hand it is a traditional appointment logged almost automatically on our calendar of annual commitments, on the other it is a meeting that forces everyone to look with less superficiality to the time spent, activities carried out, people met, objectives achieved and to the failures we wish we could take back.     This year’s...

To the edge… of the Kazakh land

The long journey of our project to support the parents of children with Down’s syndrome continues.

Synod 2018 on young people

Pope Paul VI and Archbishop Oscar Romero declaired saints

A very special event of October was the Church declaration of Pope Paul VI and Archbishop Oscar Romero saints of the Catholic Church. To those who do not know their story, we would suggest to use internet to find out why they are so important for the life of the world and of Caritas.

Addictions

Addictions

Addictions – drugs and alcohol in the first place – is a problem that has its roots far in the past, and its fruits, unfortunately, continue to manifest themselves tragically in our society, often affecting the most fragile people, and often young people. Frequently in our work, we contact these problematic issues. And the words of the document of the Second Vatican Council on the Church in the contemporary...
