What is the Ithaca Team?
The Ithaca Team, formed after the Diocesan Forum in late 2012, is a group of volunteers working to improve communications within and between parishes in the Catholic Diocese of Helsinki.
Who are we?
We are all Catholics of good standing, mostly lay people but there are also a couple of priests in the team.
We do our volunteer work with the blessing and support of the Bishop of Helsinki, Teemu Sippo SCJ, but we - and this site - are not official representatives of the Catholic Church in Finland.
The Ithaca Team's current leader is Sara Torvalds. You can reach the team by e-mail on firstname.lastname@example.org. We've also set up a Facebook page for this site and here's a presentation page so you'll know who to look for at a church coffee...
The Ithaca Team aims to serve the entire Diocese of Helsinki, which covers all of Finland, but is based at the Studium Catholicum in Helsinki and benefits from the active support and involvement of the Studium Catholicum.
