Ettal, (Germany) -- Priests’ Fasching Conference
Each year, during the “Fasching,” (Mardi Gras) holidays, a gathering for priests is held in Ettal, a small village in the Bavarian Alps, half way between Munich and Innsbruck. This year it took place from the tenth to the twelfth of February. Priests came from various parts of Bavaria as well as from Austria. As in past years, the priests made new friends, shared experiences, prayed together and deepened their formation. Information on various initiatives of evangelization throughout the world helped to spur the apostolic zeal of those attending. This year the main focus of the presentations was the social communications media, a topic that affects their pastoral work in many ways.
