Happy New Year and Merry Great News!

Dear Friends and dear Sponsors

The year 2013 has brought won­derful tid­ings to us and we want to share and cel­e­brate them with you.

On January 1st, our founder, Rev. Thierry de Roucy, has been pro­moted to the rank of Officer of the Legion of Honour, of which he has been a recip­ient from 2003!

The Legion of Honour, or in full the National Order of the Legion of Honour (Ordre National de la Légion d’Honneur) is a French order estab­lished by Napoleon Bonaparte on 19 May 1802. The Order is the highest dec­o­ra­tion in France.The order’s motto is Honneur et Patrie ("Honour and Fatherland"), and its seat is the Palais de la Légion d’Honneur on the left bank of the River Seine in Paris.

This dis­tinc­tion is a recog­ni­tion of the work done by Father Thierry during all these years. It is also, we believe, a recog­ni­tion of the work of each one of our vol­un­teers, our employees, our priests, reli­gious sis­ters and lay con­se­crated, of each family and young people com­mitted in the Kolbe fra­ter­ni­ties, of all of the friends who sur­round us with their affec­tion and of each sponsor who, for many years, have been par­tic­i­pating spir­i­tu­ally or finan­cially to our mis­sion.

On this day, January 4th, anniver­sary of the Intuition Day which saw the birth of our Spiritual Family 23 years ago, we want to thank Father Thierry for his tire­less work and father­hood and to con­grat­u­late him on this recog­ni­tion.
