600 Year-Celebration

600 years Celebration - The Brotherhood of St. Christoph has a rich history that goes back over 628 years. We want to be the anchor for people in need hand in hand. We see ourselves as a generation community that spans the entire globe. Our values of the founding times are our guide today.

Meeting brings Cohesion

Meetings are important to us. People want to be seen and heard. That is as important for our members as it is for the people that we support with our donations. Only thus are hearts drawn together, more closely than just by donations.

Fostering of our community

We place great importance on the fostering of our community. Our annual meeting strengthens our unity and gives us the opportunity to establish our roots and to unite generations.

Success for the charity event #herzensART

From October 8 to 10, 2020, the #herzensART charity event took place in the Kesselhaus Innsbruck. Together with the Brotherhood of St. Christoph, the organizers wanted Sister Dr. Silvia Hackl and novice Bettina Kantner, with the event, mitigate the fate of 13-year-old Simon. Simon lives in the Tiroler Unterland and attends school in the Elisabethinum in Axams. He is severely disabled physically and mentally and cannot walk on his own. He is brought to and from school by car every day. The total travel time is between 3 and 4 hours a day. He therefore needs a special Kidsflex disabled car seat.
Many artists put themselves in the service of the cause and made works of art available which interested visitors could buy. There was also a raffle with great prizes. The event was a huge success and in the end an amount of € 17,315.00 could be transferred to the St. Christoph Brotherhood. Many thanks to all sponsors, donors and of course to the organizers Silvia and Bettina.
