Over the summer many activities will take place in our parishes in Tirana. At the moment, we have English language courses taking place, led by 3 people from Ireland. We will soon start our summer camps for children in Kamez, where we will explore the history and mission of the Redemptorists with the children, as well as playing many games in the sun!
A group of young adults will be travelling to Belgium to participate in an international youth meeting organized by the Belgium youth organization Chiro. They will stay in several Redemptorist communities during the journey, and so learn a little more about our charism.
Two confreres from Poland will be coming, and will lead some music workshops for young people.
Finally some young lay missionaries from Spain will be coming to work in one of churches (Luz) with some very practical needs, such as cleaning and repairing the roof, alongside some young people of the area.
We are grateful that both confreres and lay people have volunteered to contribute their time to our mission in this, our first year.
