Music and Peace – Travelogue October 2019

After graduating from high school, Tobias Senn traveled to Lebanon for the first time under the patronage of SLS. As a juvenile, he was delighted to bring joy to the juveniles in Lebanon with his violin music.

This very simple form of playing or making music together was very popular in Lebanon. Tobias was able to inspire the audience or co-musicians of all ages.

His travelogue tells his impressions and experiences. Especially worth reading is his conclusion.

New websites on the SLS homepage

After the successful seminars in Lebanon in October, the cooperation between SLS and SMS has intensified. A newly formed scholarship commission has provided us with many additional information and information. For example, we have created five additional websites for our main project “Scholarships”.

Also in the large-scale project CTP, many questions were answered and we received clear statements and information. So also in this menu five additional websites could be activated.

As part of all these changes, six existing websites have also been redesigned or updated with new information.

Have fun browsing through our homepage.

Travel report CPP October 2019

The intensive working week in Lebanon in October 2019 was mainly devoted to our main project “Educational Scholarships”.

Nevertheless, we found enough time on site to meet with those responsible for constructing the CPP on the construction site in Ehmej several times.We were amazed at the great progress and the high quality of the work.

The travelogue reflects the subjective impressions of Matthias Senn.

Installation of relics

On Saturday, September 28, 2019, the relics of Saint Charbel and Saint Niklaus of Flüe were installed in the church of Chermignon (VS). Afterwards, Nabih Yammine held a conference on the life and work of the saints and was ready to answer questions.

So the two peace patrons moved in together to another church in Switzerland.

Donations for Holy Masses

Thanks to generous donations, we have received funds for more than 300 Holy Mass readings in Lebanon. The Masses are read above all for peace and reconciliation.

A heartfelt “God bless” to all faithful donors.

SLS Seminar “Educational Scholarships”

After several weeks of intensive preparations, countless phone calls, preliminary discussions and a pre-seminar, the seminal “Educational Scholarships” seminar took place on May 18, 2019 at the KAN in Stans.

We are extremely grateful for our friends who have traveled to Stans and have given us their time, but even more, their valuable advice and contributions.

SLS is happy to be supported by such a loyal circle of friends and experts. We are confident that we will achieve our goals together without losing sight of our values.

Here are some impressions of yesterday’s meeting:



 

“Music and Peace” – 7th tour

From March 1st to 10th, for the seventh consecutive year, Carole Collaud, Elise Monney, Mélanie El Khoury (for music) and Hélène Godts (for the theater) toured Lebanon for 10 days to perform their art in various concerts, workshops and theaters with children.

On Saturday, March 16th, Carole Collaud, Elise Monney and Melanie El Khoury presented the report of their stay at the Phoenix in Fribourg and delighted the audience with a great concert.

The short video of the melody of Fairouz’s song “Give Me the Flute and Sing” is performed in this line-up: Elise at the piano, Melanie at the clarinet interprets the oriental version and Carole at the flute enchants with the sounds of the famous tango “La Cumparsita” which would be at the origin of the oriental melody.
