Kolping Society South Tyrol in Merano/Meran

The Kolping Family Merano/Meran – an idea takes form

The Kolping Society South Tyrol has the mission to work for and with the family and to support youngsters with a variety of activities organised by the Kolping Family Merano/Meran. Members of the Kolping Society South Tyrol - as well as non-members - are invited to participate.

Journeymen's House and Kolping Family
Adolph Kolping orginated the idea of a workers' home, offering journeymen an inviting environment, proper catering, a place to sleep as well as security and community far from their home country. Out of the journeymen's unions, the so-called Kolping Families were created.

Students and Kolping Houses
Today it is pupils and students who move out to study. Out of the Journeymen's Houses, the Kolping Houses were born. The Kolping Society South Tyrol offers young people a place to lead a life in order, in a family-like structure offered by the community - founded by Adolph Kolping - a place to unravel and find their own way in life.

Kolping Family Merano/Meran
The Kolping Family today is an independent, charitable association where honorary office, community and sociability are lived every day, according to Christian social beliefs. Trips, presentations, hikes, excursions, meetings and events for young and old are organised by groups of the Kolping Society South Tyrol. The chair of the Kolping Family coordinates the activities offered.

Get to know one another
The social life of the association takes place in the bistro, the kids' corner, the halls and the other rooms in Kolping House Merano/Meran. Here, young and old meet and greet during public and private events, for instance for a casual chat, for a game of cards, for a dining experience in the restaurant or for a coffee on our terrace or garden.

Kolping Society South Tyrol creates space for ideas
"You are what you make of yourself." (Adolph Kolping) The Kolping Family Merano/Meran offers a place for ideas. Here, everyone is welcome to get active and busy, as a visitor or as a fixed group member.

Kolping Society South Tyrol: a community to join
The about 200 members of Kolping Family come from the greater Merano/Meran area. We still have space in our circle! If you are up for it, simply join and participate in a theatre group, choir, band, spiritual, hobby or self-help group, time bank, social service, themed meetings, language learning groups or form your own group! The Kolping Family Merano/Meran is glad to help!
