E s’ tu non ti conforti, tu cadrai In disperanza […] – Cino da Pistoia
Starting from our understanding of the word hope, going through both secular, Christian, and biblical history, we want to try to understand how necessary it is to have confidence. Agape teaches us to trust in human beings hoping that this will improve the world; would it even work without hope? Can trust exist without hope?
We want to try to reflect on the importance of trust in faith: do we need to strengthen hope or trust to, perhaps, regain that faith in God that we can no longer feel?
The camp is aimed at those who are interested in theology, those who are in research, and those who want to share their faith journey: it is a camp whose basis is the deep sense of service and community living. Through diverse experiences and knowledge sharing, Agape creates the foundation for personal and faith growth based on mutual respect and care.
Reflection will be conducted in multiple voices to build a plurality of thought; participants will be involved with group reflections, thematic workshops, theological animations and plenary discussions. Morning meditations and spiritual aperitifs will be conducted within the camp. There will be the usual outing to enjoy the landscape and nature.
We look forward to seeing you with confidence and hope!
Vi aspettiamo con fiducia e speranza!
Early notification of any medical problems, (medications, allergies, diuresis, phobias, etc...), or dietary (food allergies, forbidden foods, etc...; in these cases it would be really important that you notify us of any needs at least a week in advance, to allow the kitchen to set up properly) is very important. Enclose a sheet at the time of registration.
Adult(s) and youth(s) over the age of 14 must have a valid ID card or document.
Agape is not liable for accidents or damages that may occur. The Center is only liable for cash and personal items if they are expressly turned over for safekeeping. Agape will seek reimbursement for damages caused by guests.
Agape cannot administer medication. If there are special needs, it is necessary to provide the necessary supplies before arriving. The pharmaceutical dispensary in Prali is not open every day.
Agape cannot accommodate, for hygienic reasons, dogs or other animals inside the Center.
Agape provides blankets and sheets, but you must bring your own towels. Rooms are three- or four-bed, with bathrooms on the floor; no single or double rooms are provided.
Please note that Agape is located at 1,600 meters above sea level, and even in summer, evenings are particularly cold.
