There were mainly young families, with their children. The program was very varied, lively, and well participated. In the morning, there were formation sessions for parents, which they themselves prepared, on themes of spirituality applied to family life, which also included moments of dialogue and sharing. At the same time, programs adapted to the various ages of the children were planned. In the afternoon. There were various activities for the whole family which they did together: games, walks, canoeing … It was a very beautiful, profound and family-friendly experience for today.

The life of the New Families Movement for the year 2023-2024 in Poland goes on
On 1, 2 and 3 September 2023, a beautiful “a-new-start-of-the-year” congress was held for the families of Poland. The venue was the Citadel “Fiore” (Flower) near Warsaw, a very nice and family-friendly place. The children who were present were able to take advantage of a program for them. For parents, the main topic was spirituality and prayer in the family. Themes, experiences, meditations and dialogue helped everyone to deepen these fundamental aspects. The environment of the citadel, with the presence of various people who live there, was important and useful for these days of life together. It was an experience of “recharging of the batteries” before returning to everyday life, being more motivated and serene.
