To mark the occasion of the 400th anniversary of the Bavarian Province of the Order, we are delighted to invite you to our European congress.
Our motto: "Hospitality creates Future"
Date: 01 June 2022 – 03 June 2022
Venue: Marina Forum Regensburg
Together with numerous guests from our facilities in Germany and other European countries, we would like to use this congress as an opportunity to examine how hospitality paves the way to the future.
The Hospitaller Order of Saint John of God has experienced many things in its long history. Throughout the turmoil of the centuries, which were marked by wars, famines, diseases, and epidemics, but also by social and cultural change, the Order has had to re-form itself several times and adapt to changing circumstances.
Adaptability without arbitrariness is characteristic for this development.
"Our decisions reach further than our cognition." This statement by the German philosopher Immanuel Kant is still valid today and shows the importance of both a clear analysis and direction as well as the insight that one's own ability is limited. In this spirit, with different stimuli from scientific lectures as well as reports on experiences from internal and external speakers, lively debates, and multiple discussions among ourselves, we would like to reflect on the path that the facilities of the Hospitaller Order of Saint John of God can take against the backdrop of today's changes. And last but not least, we would like to discuss when to prioritise technical solutions, especially in the field of medicine, and in which areas modern equipment cannot replace human bonds and care.
We have put together an extensive congress programme for you. However, we have also allowed enough time for sightseeing and other tourist activities, as well as space for informal conversations with each other.
We are very much looking forward to meeting you and our colleagues of the Hospitaller Order of Saint John of God in Europe.
