A few Days to Christmas. Let's Prepare it Together!

It is 30 years that the Community of Sant'Egidio prepares a table for those who would remain excluded by the Christmas Celebrations. In a time of crisis we want to make this table even larger: initiatives, appointments, videos, books and ... many other ideas to participate to this Christmas event.

A few days to Christmas, the most beautiful and expected feast of the year. But in this time marked by economical crisis and by many difficulties, is it really a feast for all?

Many are excluded because they are lonely, or too poor. They are the old people without a family, thiose who have no home or no work, those who are sick. 

Since 1982 (thirty years now) we celebrate Christmas with them!

Last year more than 150.000 people took part to the Christmas Lunch.

This year we would like this table to become even larger.

Together we can do it. You too can help!
