Her feast day and her courageous witness seems a good opportunity for us to inform you in a short letter about what is going on in Andante during these special times.
We are pleased to inform you already today about the date of our next study days and ask you to include this in your planning. We hope and look forward to seeing you again from 30th June to 5th July 2021 in Riga on the topic: Our voice – our lives – our future. Empowerment of women and women’s organisations.
