27.04.2020: Continental Assemly postponed

The executive board decided not to hold a Continental Convention in 2020. The next Continental Convention will be held in Esztergom / Hungary from April 9th to April 11th, 2021.


Dear Kolping sisters, dear Kolping brothers,

The coronavirus pandemic is still dominating our lives. Although in some countries the first small steps are taken to ease the current restrictions, the future is not at all certain. From today’s point of view, the timing and planning consequences of these absolutely necessary measures decreed by the national governments cannot yet be foreseen. In Europe, we will have to deal with the consequences of the coronavirus pandemic for a long time. Many of our national associations are deeply troubled; in the near future, they will have to find an answer to the question how to make Kolping activities workable under coronavirus conditions. This will certainly be their first priority.

Therefore, the executive board decided not to hold a Continental Convention in 2020. The next Continental Convention will be held in Esztergom / Hungary from April 9th to April 11th, 2021.

We are very pleased that Kolping Hungary is again willing to organise the convention. Many thanks for that! We hope that many of the interrupted preparations can still be useful next year.

We kindly ask you to save the date for Kolping Europe. Further information will follow in due course. Also we would like you to keep in mind the elections and to propose suitable candidates.

For the coming time, we wish you strength, energy and trust in God. We send our best wishes greet you from all our hearts with a cordial “Treu Kolping!”

On behalf of the continental executive board

Chairwoman Kolping Europe
