School of Community

School of Community is an educational tool which aids a deeper understanding of the experience of the Christian event in our daily lives. It is a weekly catechesis and moment of fellowship, consisting of reading and personal meditation upon a text proposed to the whole Movement, followed by community meetings.

It is conceived just like a school: first, the will to learn is necessary; secondly, the seriousness and sincerity of a comparison with your own experience is required in order to communicate how the mystery of God is working in your life in a concrete way. The texts reflected upon and discussed are usually those of the founder, Fr. Luigi Giussani, or his successor, Fr. Julián Carrón. Participation is free and meetings generally occur weekly.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Owning to the pandemic, some School of Communities are currently taking place online or in a hybrid format. Please email the relevant community for further details.
