Summer work in the Province of Mediterránea

24/07/2006: Spain

In July, nearly 1000 young people from the zone of Bética are participating in activities prepared by the pastoral team. They belong to groups that deepen their faith in our schools.
These children aged 12 and 13, are taking part in ten-day camps. Each of the four camps is hosting one hundred young people, accompanied by twenty animators, boys who, in their turn, are following a formation in faith.
For their part, the boys, aged 14 to 17, can participate in exchanges in the houses of the Province. There are about four hundred of them able to benefit from this activity. They are accompanied by seventy animators and five catechists.
The 18 year olds have organised a service camp under the sign of solidarity; for ten days, they look after marginalised people, sick people, etc. About forty young people helped by ten adults have offered their service to those who are in need. They can thus have an experience of service and of formation in solidarity.
University students who want to continue to grow in their faith after having left our schools can participate in a special six-day retreat. There, they share their experiences in an atmosphere of rest and reflection.
As well, in the zone of Levante, the schools are very active with the scouting movement that has been developed now for several years. Hundreds of young people aged 9 to 18 participate in camps nearly everywhere in Spain. Many co-ordinators, collaborators and parents accompany them.
In this zone, there are also courses for monitors and animators for the young people who want them. A pilgrimage to Taizé is also planned in September for interested university students to have an intense spiritual experience in an atmosphere of communion and Christian ecumenism. To encourage solidarity, a group of ten young people have gone to Equatorial Guinea and to Ghana to do some work, each according to his speciality, during the whole month of July.
