The name may be unknown to many, but in Germany Kolping International is known for helping families from all over the world. Recently a group of 25 members came to Rome, dressed in their bright orange shirts, to see Pope Francis in St. Peter's Square.
"We are coming from the Kolping Family Society of Germany. It's a Catholic organization with half a million members from all over the world and we are all coming from one town and so we are one group here to visit Rome.” "Our first idea, when we decided to come to Rome, we decided to go to the General Audience.”
They say that through their visit to the Vatican, they're hoping they'll be able to help and inspire thousands of more families back home in Germany.
