50 years – 50 voices

“KOLPING INTERNATIONAL is much more than a registered association, much more than an association or an organization. KOLPING INTERNATIONAL is a worldwide vibrant network for the creation of a socially just society on the basis of Christian faith and Catholic Social teaching. And Blessed Adolph Kolping himself was one of the co-founders of the Catholic Social teaching. From the bottom of my heart I thank all those who, for 50 years now, have participated in spinning the net of KOLPING INTERNATIONAL and have committed themselves with power, heart and brains, so that work in dignity is possible, without exploiting anyone or putting lives at risk.”
