“Congratulations on the 50th anniversary of KOLPING INTERNATIONAL. I greatly recognize and appreciate the work done! Blessed Adolph Kolping would be a great supporter of KOLPING INTERNATIONAL today. For him the words: “When the need is greatest, God’s help is nearest”, were always crucial. God’s help is not an automatism, but is mediated by faithful, committed Christians. Today there is especially great need among young people in Africa and Latin America. They need schools and vocational training, jobs and trust in the future. KOLPING INTERNATIONAL is committed to them and brings them God’s help. All the best for a successful future!”

Dr. Ludwig Schick, Chairman of the Commission for International Church Affairs of the German Bishops‘ Conference and Archbishop of Bamberg
