The family of Sant'Egidio of New York on holidays, in joy and diversity: it's santegidiosummer!

For the first time, the Community of New York enjoyed a few days together at the end of summer. Elderly and homeless friends, together with kids from the School of Peace, reveled in and were grateful for this gathering without divisions.

The typical apple picking and campfire particularly delighted all generations. We also prayed for peace and shared the images of Pope Francis’ visit at Zimpeto.

“Until next year” with #santegidiosummer was the promise with which we came back to New York City.
