THE PARISH IN NERATOVICE IS FULL OF LIFE; THE ONLY THING MISSING IS A ROOF OVER OUR HEADS.
Our community has a vibrant cultural and social life. The parishioners celebrate Holy communion during Sunday mass together (commonly attended by 200 people), but also organize multiple cultural activities and trips, meetings, and workshops which are open to everyone, regardless of faith. Nevertheless, suitable space for these activities is missing.
Five years ago, the parishioners founded Salesian Youth Movement – Neratovice Club covering most events that the parish stages. There are many activities prepared especially for children and youth. Every month, they organize at least one trip or a weekend gathering, and in summer there are camps. However, most events take place in Neratovice – regular meetings of children, youth or mothers, community evenings, costume parties for children, garden parties, Christmas parties, and afternoon games.
The parish also has two choirs, youth society, religious education classes, and also works as a place for mothers with children to meet.
The whole community operates in improvised conditions, at the cost of great personal effort. The proposed church building would function as a community center, that welcomes not only religious societies and activities but all the people in Neratovice who want to get involved in the social and cultural life of the community.
