Via several workgroups, the Msgr. Schraven Foundation makes her objectives operable. In the mean time some of those have started their activities and others want to do so. We introduce them to you:

Sexual Violence Working Group

The task of this working group is to translate the main purpose of the foundation into concrete projects. This goal is: to contribute to the prevention of sexual violence and the promotion of solidarity with victims of sexual violence.
The working group calls on experts by experience to participate.

Workgroup memorial monument

The order is the formation and maintenance of a monument, dedicated to the memory of Msgr. Schraven and companions. A memory chapel is in construction in an aisle of the parish church in Broekhuizenvorst. At the moment this order is looked after by the whole directory, especially the DB.

Workgroup study and beatification

The order is to investigate the historical facts and publications around Msgr. Schraven and companions and so to contribute to a possible beatification process.

Workgroup memorabilia

The order is to collect and describe all memorable objects of Msgr.Schraven among relatives, to conserve and exhibit them.

Workgroup fundraising

The order is to look for funds to make the work for the foundation possible.

Workgroup publicity and communication

The order is to take care for publicity about Msgr. Schraven and companions, about activities of the foundation, and to see that there is a regular communication with the supporters of the foundation via a newsletter, and to develop an own website and other communicative means.

Workgroup activities.

The order is to create events such as an Msgr. Schraven commemoration. But all kinds of events can be developed.

We are still in need of many hands to be able to realise our plans. Who wants to contribute one’s bit?
