On 3 June 2013, the International Eugene de Mazenod Center welcomed its first guests.
After more than a year’s work, the Center has resumed its activities. The Oblates leaders of Europe launched the new facilities. On June 3, after a celebration to open their session, together with the community, they proceeded to the inauguration of the Tempier Room.
This room served as a meeting place for the major superiors of Europe and the chairmen of the various committees who had chosen to assemble at the cradle of the Congregation for their annual meeting. For one week, they shared about Oblate Europe. And, accompanied by Fabio CIARDI, they walked in the footsteps of the Founder.
The Center is almost complete: about 30 rooms with bathrooms are ready to welcome you. During the academic year, some rooms are reserved for rental to students who share their life with the community.
