The Kerŷgma Movement saw its inception with the Kerŷgma Community, established in 1984 by Fr. Charles Fenech O.P., a Dominican priest; a community of youths brought together with the ideal of: “for a Christian commitment in today’s society”. On the 19th of May of 1987, the Maltese Dominican Province accepted this community as the Kerŷgma Movement. This was a movement built around the Dominican charisma of prayer and formation for a Christian commitment in today’s society. The movement worked towards projects for a christian formation targeting adults, youths, adolescents and children.
Today, the Kerŷgma Movement continues to work according to the teachings of the Catholic Church, inspired by the Dominican charisma of the new Evangelisation of today’s society.
