Dear Sir or Madam,
I am a 40-year-old single male from Belgium and used to work as a freelance translator before a long struggle with Crohn’s disease made me finally decide to pursue the life God wants me to live. As a result, I quit my job as a translator three years ago and started a 6-month training programme to become a handyman and broaden my working skills.
Early in 2015, I started to search for Catholic agricultural and intentional communities engaged in (re)establishing local or regional sanctuaries, where I could hopefully volunteer and perhaps relocate to if I clearly felt my calling is with them.
Unfortunately, it is very difficult to find this type of community in Europe. Most of them seem to be located in North America, and the ones that I have visited in Europe had more of a countercultural streak. That is why I would like to ask you if you happen to know other key persons or organizations that are engaged in this new Catholic Land movement, especially if they are located in Europe.
Wishing you a reinvigorating Eastertide, I remain,
