context & objective
The Gospels describe Jericho, a Palestinian city on the Jordan River, as the location where Jesus and Zacchaeus met. For centuries, Franciscan friars have worked with the poorest families, spiritually accompanying those who are unsure and providing material assistance to those who are vulnerable.
Pro Terra Sancta is determined to work alongside Franciscan custody in the training of young people. The Association manages the city’s mosaic school, the ‘Mosaic Center’, founded by Father Michele Piccirillo. The center’s programs are directed towards Jericho’s youth, in order to ensure their future in the name of the beauty that distinguishes their land’s cultural legacy.
Parallel to practical training, Pro Terra Sancta organizes Italian and English language courses for cultural heritage, to make Jericho a center of communication, as well as production, of artistic beauty.
