Dear OBSG Friends,

On May 10 it will be just one year that Father Charles left us.

The Roman Catholic chaplain for International Students in Ghent, Father Bert Vanderhaegen and the International Roman Catholic Community of Ghent are organizing a memorial service on Sunday May 13, 2018 at 11:30 HRS at the Christus Koning Church. The Holy mass will be graced by the International Choir.

You are kindly invited to participate to the celebration in memory of Father Charles and join for a small reception after the service in the back of the church.

FAMILY FUN DAY – Sunday April 15, 2018


Dear OBSG Residents, International students and friends,

For many years OBSG was organizing an Open Door Event for the International Student Community in Ghent. This time we want to do something completely different.

Sunday April 15, 2018 from 14:00 Hrs on we will keep a big “Vlaamse Kermis”, what we call in English, a Family Fun Day, for adults and kids. This is a typical Flemish Folk Festival with stalls and popular games. Most of the games are made of recycled materials, toys from our childhood and objects that we use every day. Oh, I forgot. It’s all for free!

A small selection of the games: sack-racing, beer ping pong, relay games, table kicker, hula hoop, dexterity games, etc…

During this afternoon we will be serving homemade cakes, coffee and tea and what would be a carnival without popcorn and cotton candy.

So, you are all warmly invited to join on Sunday April 15 in the garden of OBSG!

Come numerous!
