“Europe finds new hope when man is the centre and the heart of her institutions.”

The founding fathers remind us that Europe is not a conglomeration of rules to obey, or a manual of protocols and procedures to follow. It is a way of life, a way of understanding man based on his transcendent and inalienable dignity, as something more than simply a sum of rights to defend or claims to advance. At the origin of the idea of Europe, we find “the nature and the responsibility of the human person, with his ferment of evangelical fraternity…, with his desire for truth and justice, honed by a thousand-year-old experience”.”

cep-spain-summer-2016More than 100 leaders from all over Spain recently enjoyed the training camps of our association for all branches from August 21st to 28th! This year we have the great opportunity to received training for company leaders by two Polish guides. To them and to our sister the Polish Association, we thank it heartily. Also we had training for group and district leaders, and we welcome two rangers and one rover scout in the RS Community. We are very thankful for all these blessings received from the consecration of our association to the Sacred Hearth of Jesus and Mary of last June. We feel more and more united and are actually working on a project of a camp for all branches next summer: Ibercamp 2017. We ask for the prayer of all our brothers and sisters of the UIGSE, thanks in advance!
