Work: The meaning of the pilgrimage to St. Anna is to spread the work of Benediktus among people. Volunteers will help to prepare and implement the event. The pilgrimage starts with Holy Mass and includes food and drink stalls, countless games for children, live music, theatre and much more. The work tasks will include mowing and raking grass, carrying things, setting up tents, tables and benches, cleaning, cooking, baking, frying, accompanying people with disabilities at work and in their free time, attending community meetings, selling products, making banners or doing face painting. The work will not be physically demanding and does not require any previous experience. Most of the work will be carried out outside, please, bring adequate boots and clothes that can get dirty and a raincoat.
Study part: As part of the pilgrimage, there will be a meeting with the general public and the volunteers will have the opportunity to present their culture, either in the form of theatre, fun games for children or making typical food. Other Czech and foreign volunteers also take part in the pilgrimage, with whom there will be an opportunity not only to work but also to spend free time together. During the project, volunteers have a unique opportunity to learn about the life and work of people with and without disabilities in the L'Arche community.
