Address: Via Damiano Chiesa, 12 - Fai della Paganella (TN) – Italy

The Daughters and Sons of the Immaculate Heart of Mary (FFCIM) offer their house on the Brenta Dolomites to parochial groups, oratories, associations, groups of families in self-catering.

Fai della Paganella (TN) is situated near Trento (18 miles far ) and the nearest exit from the motorway is San Michele All’Adige (10 miles far) : it’s 958 mt above sea level . Here a pleasant holiday resort can offer the chance to booster our Christian formation.

In the ‘60s, the house was used by the same religious community of the Daughters and Sons of the Immaculate Heart of Mary (FCIM) for holidays and, in summer, for summer camps with children- from 3 to 11- whose parents couldn’t afford a holiday with the whole family.

In Sept. 1969 it also became a meeting point for groups of young people coming from different parts of Italy : it was the chance to experience communal life, to improve the knowledge of the Gospel, to organise spiritual retreats. These meetings triggered the religious radical choice of some young men and women, who decided to offer their life to God through the Community of the Daughters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

They officially joined the community of the Sisters, through the vows of charity and unity, setting their obedience to the religious authorities. What united them was not a common interest or common activities but the strong charism and spirituality transmitted by Maria Liliana ,:” Let me , your Lord, live in you” . On 31st Dec. 1972 the Pope Paul VI addressed this group of young people as “Heralds of the Great King” and so thanks to this first communitarian experience, the new name of the Pious Union became “Daughters and Sons of the Immaculate Heart of Mary”.

The natural environment enables this home to be a favourable place for meditations and retreats and since 1972 it has helped people in their spiritual discernment.
