International Catholic Students at Johanneskolleg Dormitory plants Peace Pole in Munich

April 8th 2014

The Munich Catholic Students`Dormitory “Johanneskolleg” (part of Missio international) planted a peace pole together with current and former students from 42 nations, such as China, Peru, Indonesia, Syria, Nepal and Australia.


The Management of the Dormitory read about the peace pole project during a recent inter-religious Peace Prayer in Munich  and ordered a peace pole on the next day. Two Catholic priests blessed the pole with holy water, students representing each continent said prayers. Sister Francesca mentioned the acupuncture comparison, ie; peace poles are like acupuncture for the world.


In the Dormitory’s Entrance hall there were congratulations mail from former students for the new peace pole. Afterwards everybody went inside where the young students represented their respective countries not only with flags but also gorgeous finger food.

One could tell the students are proud about their dormitory in the heart of Munich`s University Area. 

May Peace Prevail with all Students in this world.
