Community of Sant’Egidio

I had previously visited the church of Sant’ Egidio in Rome, Trastevere square. But during a visit last September with colleagues, I was reminded of the lay community that has its roots in that church, since 1968. The community is a prophetic and actual sign of peace.
Programs like Play, Recycle and Play Again are imaginative, practical.
There is a daily prayer, commemmorating a saint in the Catholic calendar and at the end of a prayer rhythm that is very European in design, one can email a prayer. All prayers received on the website are included in the Sunday liturgy at Sant’Egido.
Nice mix of physical/cyber. Great community.
