Without doubts work of “Children Rehabilitation and Spirituality Centre” is the biggest pastoral and charity work of Catholic Church in Kyrgyzstan. This is also our biggest activity between Muslims. Every camps has his own specific:
Camps for disabled children are the testimony of Christian love for Muslim society.
Protestant camps are example of practical ecumenism.
Astronomical camps are pre-evangelization work with Muslim youth.
Catechetical camps for catholic youth (this years the theme was: saints) and children (this years the theme was: Fatima) are work of growing up future generation of Catholics in Central Asia.
