    Our presence in Reggio Calabria in the Eucharistic Center of St. Joseph dates back to 1980; the Community, dedicated to Mary "Mater Castissima", carried forward with joy the mission of animating Eucharistic adoration, of liturgical animation, ecumenical prayer.

    We also collaborate with the parish of St. Giorgio al Corso and in particular with the laity who are part of the Lay Association of the Daughters of the Church.

    Since February 2007, the Community of Santa Maria Porto di Pace, a House of Spirituality has been opened in north Arghillà. The House, located on the top of the hill about 160 meters from the sea level, in front of the Strait of Messina offers to those who wish to advance in the journey of prayer, space for an encounter with the Lord, in an atmosphere of silence and recollection.

    Since 2016, the two houses, due to the decline in the number of the Sisters, constitute a single Community and work together each carrying on its specific mission.

    The Eucharistic Center of St. Joseph is a place of prayer sought by young people from the Diocesan Youth Ministry Center and adolescents attending the Teaching Institute of Reggio, which is a place of meeting and promotion of various initiatives for the Christian formation of children and youth.
