Eurotreff 2003

EuroTreff 2003_4
I look back and I see myself two weeks ago, trying to figure out what would I experience in this so called ‘Eurotreff’. I was born in a very Catholic environment but to be honest after a whole summer of hard work, I wasn’t actually looking forward to pay this trip to Vienna to spend all the time praying. But something kept me on and during our preparations as a group I saw something different.

All the members of our group are very hectic students all year round but all of us made it to our meetings and preparations. Being a student involves a lot of study and hard work, free time is quite limited. Therefore it was quite a surprise to be part of this group of students, who rather then rest in their free time choose to dedicate it to a group who enriches catholic values and who encourages the sharing of one’s talents for the benefit of others. I personally found it quite amazing and I thought that such youngsters are extremely rare to find. I could see it from the very first meeting we had, that everyone had a special talent and the group was nothing but homogeneous. Our leaders, Louis Debono and Fr Paul chose this group carefully.
