Today we find ourselves in the restored hall for the elderly who gather here every day; it is almost like a second home for them, where they spend a lot of time together and enjoy a range of activities. Therefore it is a very important place for our elderly, parents and grandparents.
 

The center was founded in the 50s and serves the area of ​​Bethlehem, offering activities that involve groups of all ages.

We can say that people from the Bethlehem area gather at the centre for different activities and purposes. We are proud to be part of it and we hope that more and more people will come to the center in order to start more and more activities, thus bringing the word of God to this institute.
