Seminar on Peace, Diaconia and Immigration from the prespective of the Sant’ Egidio community

Venue: Eteläranta 8, Helsinki

Welcome to the seminar on peace, diaconia and immigration!

Sant’Egidio is a Christian community born in 1968, right after the second Vatican Council. The Community pays attention to the periphery and peripheral people, gathering men and women of all ages and conditions, united by a fraternal tie through the listening of the Gospel and the voluntary and free commitment for the poor and peace. The community is known above all for its diaconal work and for combining prayer and service.
