About us:

  • Students personally chosen by Jesus, have been invited on the Mount Tabor. There were three of them – Peter, John and Jacob. It was a place where their hearts started to revive and open for the grace of God. Their hearts have been transformed.
    Jesus invites us for personal meeting with God to experience His Love,
    in order to take up the journey of following Him and proclaiming the Good News.
    We want to prepare for the meeting with You, so our faith could get stronger during these few days. We want Jesus Christ has become the most important in our life and to experience the living community of Church. After we success to unite together in true relation we would like to not only travel to Kraków but also places of our daily life so we could follow Jesus and bring others to Him.
