120 years of presence of the Camillians in Friborg

On 20 July 2020 the Camillians of the Province of Germany celebrated the one hundred and twentieth anniversary of the foundation of their community in Freiburg.

Unfortunately, the limits on social gathering imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic prevented an adequate public celebration of the event.

However, the Camillians remember with joy and also with a little pride their important history in this part of Germany.

The key points of the hundred years of Camillian apostolate in Freiburg are the long years of cooperation with the German ‘Caritas’ association, as well as pastoral service provided in various university clinics and the Josefs Hospital of Freiburg.
