In 2018 we will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the death of our father and founder, Father Joseph Kentenich (1885-1968). We invite you to a Father Kentenich Year starting on September 15, 2017 and ending with the 50th anniversary of his passing away on September 15, 2018.
Let us focus on our father and founder for one year: on his thinking and message, on his interesting biography, and on the answers he has given to the challenges of the Church and the world [which he still] wants to give through us today. This year gives us the opportunity to deepen our relationship to Father Kentenich, so that his charism can be reawakened in us. Let us invite many people to meet Father Kentenich for the first time or to rediscover him as a prophet for our time (General Praesidium, Pentecost, 2017).
