The Association ’Chapel for Europe’



français

Created in 1998, the Chapel Van Maerlant (a non-profit making association) was named after the street in which the old building was situated. According to the first article of its statutes, the aim was to contribute to the pastoral and liturgical service of the European Catholic community, in the context of the mandate received by the Society of Jesus from the bishops in a spirit of ecumenical openness, and in that perspective, to return the chapel situated in rue Van Maerlant to its original purpose as a place of worship.

The statutes, modified in 2004, have changed the title of the association, which has become the non-profit making association Chapel for Europe and at the same time, have more clearly defined its objectives by specifying that it aims to "promote ecumenical cooperation and reality and to develop religious, social and cultural activities".

May the road rise up
to meet you
may the wind be
always at your back
