Support for Scalabrini Programs in Germany

Scalabrini service in Germany is tied to the massive inflow of Italian workers that began in 1957 during the post-WWII economic boom. Traditionally, Germany has been a leader in the European economic system, providing employment and social services to those who cannot find them in their home countries. Today, Italians migrants represent one of the largest foreign populations in the country. Currently, the Scalabrinians run 11 chaplaincies, including those in Frankfurt, Köln, Ludwigsburg, Munich, Stuttgart, and Waiblingen.
