Euromoot 2019 concluded on Saturday August 3rd with an audience with the Holy Father and a Holy Mass in Saint Peter’s Basilica celebrated by Cardinal Angelo Bagnasco. The event brought to Rome more than five thousand young people from UIGSE-FSE from around twenty countries. “Do not forget: give, always in this way, going ahead; not with the desire to possess that always holds you back. “Give and it will be given to you”. It will be giving that fulfils your desire. I hope, dear guides and rovers of Europe, that you will clear the way for the path of giving.” said Pope Francis to the young people belonging to the International Union of Guides and Scouts of Europe who had walked towards Rome during one week.

During the Euromoot, the young people participated in the “Mobilia Scriptoria”, an activity inspired by the great commitment of Benedictine monasticism transmitting culture and faith after the decline of the classical age.

All four Gospels were thus entirely copied by these young people, bound in a book and offered to the Holy Father at the audience.

The Portuguese association of Guides and Scouts of Europe celebrated last weekend – 8th and 9th of June – their 40th anniversary! During a pilgrimage to the Sanctuary of Fatima, several groups from various parts of the country gathered to celebrate this important moment of their education movement for children, teenagers and adults.

In the presence of the Federal Commissioner of the UIGSE-FSE, Bruno Borde, who gave us the joy of spending this moment with us, wolf cubs, guides, scouts, rangers, rovers and leaders lived a great weekend of true scout fraternity.
