First days in Vicar

Dear reader,
Thank you for checking out this blog. We love to share our experiences of the small temporary community that we are. We came to Vicar (in Spain) for one month to share some of our Taize experiences, to help the local parish with its activities and to experience what it is like to form a community with the three of us in work and prayer. You can find more about us on the page ‘Who are we’.

First of all, we want to express how thankful we are. We are kindly welcomed by different people that let us sleep in their houses and have been meeting a lot of kind people. It is a real privilege to be here and get an insight in the culture of Spain, where meeting with each other is very important. Especially dinner is an important time to meet and we have been invited to dinner by many people already (eating paella with 20 people). The welcome here is incredible; we are hosted as if we were in their families!

We live in a house quickly restored for our arrival. It’s situated in a gypsy quarter, were there are also squats were immigrants live . Not too far away are makeshifts.

We came to help the parishes of father Antonio and father Manolo. Their parishes are involved in many activities, like bible study for children, Spanish classes for immigrants, play with immigrant children and they also often visit gypsies. For more details check out the page 'Mission activities'.
