Memorandum

The proposed new parish center is inserted into the existing urban plot: it is open to dialogue because it is a building that meets the environmental planning regulations seeking to be a server and attentive space to the needs of the people of Esplugues de Llobregat. At the same time it aims to be an "urban oasis" in the middle of the continuum of the city. This intention is reinforced by the visual connection to the rear park plot and interior landscaped courtyard. A place of peace and reunion for the comunity. The mission of the Church consists of three main concepts: the celebration of faith (liturgy), the proclamation of faith (kerygma) and the faith service (diakonia). As long as these three vectors are developed, an integrated ministry appears. Thus we want the project to talk about this mission:
LITURGY (parish church, Prayer area, ephemera oratories, multipurpose room)
KERYGMA (catechesis rooms, exhibition spaces, conference room, multipurpose rooms, fits into the urban plot)
DIAKONIA (parish offices, facilities, service spaces, social housing, Caritas activities, multipurpose room).
