W22: Church for children

The “Religious Children’s Weeks” are considered a successful model of the Catholic Church in East Germany. For decades, they have created identity in faith and contributed to community building between generations. The workshop explores what other dioceses can learn from this model and what is needed for successful religious children’s camps.
