THE REGINA PACIS
COMMUNITY

In Alessandro’s footsteps

In August 1986, Alessandro and Luisa Nottegar created the Regina Pacis Community: a community based on prayer, evangelization and service to the poor. Regina Pacis has been recognized by the Bishop of Verona and currently is present in Italy, Brazil and Medjugorje.

Like a family

The Regina Pacis Community consists of families, lay people, nuns, priests and friars who, in respect of the vocations, want to dedicate their life to the Lord. They share prayer, jobs, service to the poor and evangelization.

At the service of the poor

Trying to follow the example of the founder Alessandro, Regina Pacis has been present in Brazil since 1990, in three different cities, where it works serving the poor. There are more than 700 children from favelas who are welcomed every day, free of charge, in their schools.
