A church for the

next generation

The New Zentrum Johannes Paul II.

Creating a platform for Church renewal in Central Europe.

A missionary church

Everything we do is geared toward the transformation of people through an encounter with Jesus Christ. Because we believe that Christ is the answer to the deepest longings of the human person. We believe that societies and structures are transformed through people deeply transformed by the Gospel – transformed people transform people. We believe that the local Church is the ideal place where this transformation and the realization of Christ´s great commission to make disciples of all nations can happen practically. We believe that secularized Europe is in urgent need of vibrant church communities, authentic homes for encounter with God, discipleship formation, and Gospel proclamation. We want to raise up a house of prayer, a place of encounter, a wellspring of growth, a movement of Church revitalization. We want to capacitate the unchurched for missionary discipleship and assist other Catholic communities (above all parishes) to do the same. A former hotel becomes the new home for the John Paul II. Center and the platform and hub for further revitalizing efforts.

New life, not just for an old house
