N.B. ALL THOSE WORKING WITH YOUTH MUST GO THROUGH THE VIRTUS PROGRAM.

 "War destroys. And we must cry out for peace.
Peace sometimes gives the idea of stillness, but it is never stillness.
It is always an active peace.
I think that everyone must be committed in the matter of peace,
to do everything that they can,
what I can do from here.
Peace is the language we must speak."
Pope Francis
