Congress "Brussels -- Toussaint 2006"

The “2006 Brussels-Toussaint” Congress, organized by the diocese of Malines-Brussels, Belgium, took place from October 28 to November 5, 2006. It included various activities related to St. Josemaría and his message.

Many Catholics from Brussels, among them a number of the Prelature’s faithful, took part in the Congress. Its origin was a concern to help spur evangelization in the large cities. Its central motif was our Lord’s invitation: “Come and see” (Jn 1:39).

On Tuesday, October 31, in the Sacred Heart School near the Basilica of Koekelberg, a workshop was held on “The Greatness of Ordinary Life,” directed by Fr. Stéphane Seminckx.

In addition, in the centers of Opus Dei for young people, three similar sessions were held, with a colloquium and the projection of a film of St. Josemaría.

In Narval Cultural Center two sessions were held, one on October 30 for French speaking people and the other on November 4 for the Flemish speaking public. In the Fontenelle Cultural Center, a session was organized on Friday, November 3, under the direction of Marie-Anne Schnackers, an educator.

Some 150 people attended these activities.
