Our online campaign #KOLPINGworks is meant to encourage people all over the world. If there is one thing that has become evident in the past few months, it is the certainty that people remain courageous and change the world for the better. This is what #KOLPINGworks is to reflect in words and pictures: Kolping sisters and Kolping brothers, their organizations and institutions make a concrete contribution to making this world a better place  – true to their role model Adolph Kolping.

From now until the celebration of the Kolping World Day of Prayer on October 27, 2022, which will also be the 31st Anniversary of the beatification of Adolph Kolping and the highlight of the Rome pilgrimage, we will demonstrate to the world this special strength and energy emanating from Kolping today – every day, on all continents of this earth.

Let us use this period of almost two years to collect and post over the Internet examples of the work of Kolping Families in their countries to demonstrate the impact Kolping has today:  on the websites of Kolping Families, diocesan and national organizations and on all Kolping social media channels on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, WhatsApp or wherever Kolping members are active: please remember to use the hashtag #KOLPINGworks.

We will also regularly upload a new example from each country for the #KOLPINGworks campaign at In addition, we created a Facebook profile picture frame: go to and search for Kolping works, choose a picture frame and demonstrate to the online world that you are part of Kolping.
