This project arises from a need, our secondary school students, located on the 3rd floor of the school Real Monasterio Santa Isabel in the Sarria district of Barcelona, had the need to be close to Jesus.
We have found the perfect place, a place without great luxuries that we need to make it welcoming and inviting to prayer.
That is why we are launching this campaign, an appeal to everyone for our Carlo Acutis chapel.
We owe the name to him, Carlo, a normal boy, with his faults and virtues, who fought to put God first and who used the internet to evangelise. Blessed Pope Francis describes him as a creative and brilliant young man, who was able to use the “new techniques of communication to transmit the Gospel and to communicate values and beauty”. So real and so close, a “millennial” Blessed, a “God’s influencer” so that young people can identify with him and have the desire to follow Christ as he did.
Thank you for your collaboration and for making this need a reality so that our students feel close to the Lord!
