PORTUGAL, Helder Castro Valente •
Within the centenary commemoration of the Fatima Apparitions, in 2017, the Men’s Branch from Portugal – Aveiro and Lisbon – is organizing a Worldwide Gathering of Schoenstatt Men, which will be held 28-31 May 2017.
We are waiting for you!
With “Schoenstatt Men, new forgers of the future,” as a motto taken from a conference Fr. Kentenich gave to the Movement’s Men on 18 June 1966 in Schoenstatt, and based on the meaning of the 31st of May, the aim is to gather men who collaborate with Schoenstatt in one way or another. This could reinforce the Column of Men in the Movement just as Father and Founder, Joseph Kentenich desired. The gathering will be conducted in Portuguese, Spanish and English.
Consequently, the website for the encounter provides all the information relative to the gathering, as well as the respective registration date in Portuguese, Spanish and English.
For those who visit the site who do not speak Portuguese and who seek information about the daily activities choose “Programa” – an option in Spanish will also appear. If you want English, click the arrow beside the word Spanish, the option for English will appear below; it is the same for “Fees” regarding participation in the gathering.
