19.03.2020: Cancellation of the Continental Assembly 2020

Due to the Corona crisis the Continental Assembly from the 22nd to 24th of May 2020 in Esztergom / Hungary cannot take place.

 

Dear responsible persons in the national associations,
dear Kolping sisters and Kolping brothers,

the Corona virus has the whole of Europe under its control. There are exceptional situations in all countries. Closed national borders, restricted rail and air traffic, closed shops and schools, public life stands almost still for months.

The Executive Board of Kolping Europe is concerned about the development of the extent of the virus. From today's point of view, the chronological sequence of measures in the different countries cannot be foreseen. In Hungary, strict regulations are in force until June.

Therefore, the Continental Assembly from the 22nd to 24th of May 2020 in Esztergom / Hungary cannot take place.

Further information on whether and when the Continental Assembly 2020 can be held, will follow in due course.

We hope for your understanding for this decision. It shall help to calm you down and provide clarity at an early stage.

For the coming time, we wish you a lot of strength, energy and trust in God in overcoming the crisis.

Best wishes and a cordial Kolping true!

On behalf of the Executive Board of Kolping Europe

Margrit Unternährer, Chairwoman
