Membership growth in Costa Rica and Timor-Leste

There is a tremendous enthusiasm for KOLPING – all over the world. In Costa Rica and Timor-Leste, many new members have been welcomed and more Kolping Families have been founded in recent weeks.

In Costa Rica, three Kolping Families have been established in the San Isidro region: the Kolping Families Fatima, Oratorium and Las Brisas. Another two aspirants are ready to join. The workshops attended by the members of future Kolping Families are held partly online and partly in person, depending on the situation.

In Asian Timor-Leste (East Timor), the association has managed to cross the 1000 members mark: KOLPING now has 1008 members in a total of 96 Kolping Families in the dioceses of Baucau, Dili and Maliana. The focus of the association is placed on spiritual education, vocational training, income-generating measures and the granting of micro-credits. New is the own website

A warm welcome to the companionship in Kolping’s global family!
