Castores Movement


Castores is one of the movements belonging to the Deepening Pastoral (Pastoral de Profundización), and it is a follow up to the activities carried out in MEI and in Horneros.

Castores is supported by three pillars or dimensions: the Christian faith, service and community life. Those who make this commitment offered by Castores, have the opportunity to deepen their faith by helping those who are in need, and sharing this process within a group for three years.

The movement has its headquarters in the “Centro Pastoral San Alberto Hurtado” House , where the group meetings are held. The service takes place on Saturdays, at different times, depending on the task each group is assigned each year.

Each year of the process in Castores, each group is responsible for a different service, which aims at helping them in their process of growth in responsibility and an open and committed attitude towards those in need. The services are:

  • In first year, Secondary: construction of houses in the outskirts of the city, or construction of housing cooperatives.
  • In second year, Secondary: animation in parishes or merenderos (places where volunteers serve free meals to poor people), where we attempt to transmit our faith, joy and hope through games.
  • In third year, Secondary: accompanying elderly people who have been abandoned or are homeless, and disabled people, in the Cottolengos.

Counsellors: Analía Gramajo and Francisco Garce.
