Altum is a cultural and educational center that is being planned for the outskirts of Bratislava, Slovakia. The site of the new center will be the bucolic village of Slovensky Grob. The purpose of Altum is to host conferences, educational courses, lectures, workshops and spiritual retreats that will help participants grow in Christian and human virtues. It will foster an intellectual and moral environment that provides Christian education. The long-term objective is to help each participant mature and become a better person. The site of Altum is on 15 acres of land or 6 hectares. The proposed conference center is designed to host 35 people at a time and will include a library, a classroom, a chapel, sports facilities and a garden.
The name Altum was chosen because it means “depth” in Latin. It is the hope of Altum’s organizers that every participant in the center’s activities will “go out into the deep” to discover what is true, good and most beautiful. Christian and spiritual education and formation in the center is entrusted to the Personal Prelature of the Catholic Church – Opus Dei, whose spirit is based on sanctification of oneself through professional work and through the fulfillment of everyday duties of the Christian life.
Building of the center will cost about 3 million euro. The center owns 15 acres of land and has finished Schematic and Design phases of the project. As of today € 150,000 have been raised. Please help us to support the project.
