Many people wonder how the citadel gets along, who helps it financially.

The land on which it is built was donated to the Focolari Movement by His Lordship Bishop Agre, who was the then bishop of Man in 1975.

For the construction, help came from foreign benefactors and then through the labor of its inhabitants,the citadel is able to sustain itself economically.

There are various activities and social works which give employment to the neighbouring inhabitants and which also help in the developement and self maintenance of the citadel.
