  1. A beautiful three week journey while enriching my faith and love of Christ. Most intriguing was the time spent learning about other faiths. My hope and prayers are to attend this course again in the future, bringing others with me.

  2. Cuando veo el video testimonial del curso de verano 2014 recuerdo con agradecimiento el tiempo pasado en Centro Pro Unione entre junio – julio 2014, y bendigo al buen Dios por lo vivido y compartido con profesores y compañeros, por lo aprendido, por el estímulo al diálogo ecuménico e interreligioso.

    Saludo cordial desde Universidad Javeriana Bogotá al P. Puglisi. a Teresa Rossi, a todos los profesores y demás personas que prestan su servicio en Centro Pro Unione.

    Blessings and warmest regards!!

    Antonio José Sarmiento Nova,SJ
