In Meersel-Dreef, the Flemish Capuchins, under the inspiring leadership of brother Kenny Brack OFM-Cap, converted part of the old monastery into a Franciscan experience centre. Since the Reformation, the monastery has been a well-known spiritual centre for both the Flemish population from the region and for the Dutch residents of the border region. The large procession park and the accompanying cafe and playground have certainly contributed to the reputation of Meersel-Dreef for a long time. But even this place cannot escape the social and ecclesiastical changes of the present time and Father Kenny went in search of possibilities to introduce visitors to Franciscan spirituality and ultimately to themselves in a different, accessible way. Below is information taken from the website of the Saint Francis pastoral unit (Hoogstraten and Rijkevorsel). A link has also been included to the ‘idea and design studio Exponanza’, which helped shape the experience centre.
