The coordinating team of the Piarist Parishes Network has launched the web platform www.parroquiasescolapias.org to promote a Piarist model of parish.
It is the second phase of a project that aims to generate the communion of parishes inspired by the spirit and style of Calasanz, and which was pre-set last September. The objective of the platform is twofold, on the one hand to make the network more widely known and, on the other hand, to link the experiences generating synergies between the different parish realities and enhancing its relationship with the local church. Thus, on the web, available in four languages, you can find all the information about the Calasanctian characteristics of a parish, as well as the requirements and processes necessary to request inclusion in the network. The Calasanctian style of a parish implies, among other things, “the creation of children’s and youth centers, the careful organization of the catechesis of children, young people and adults, preferably poor”. In the news section, you can find all the news about the teams, as well as other resources and documentation of the Order.
Likewise, a Facebook page (@parroquiasescolapias) has been created that will have correspondents in all parish realities and wants to be an instrument with which to make visible and share all the parish life and the day to day of the 130 parishes that Piarists manage all over the world.
