From 8-9 May 2023, a meeting of Catholic prison chaplains from Europe took place in Würzburg. This meeting was organised by Doris Schäfer, the European representative of the ICCPPC (International Commission of Catholic Prison Pastoral Care), a worldwide association of Catholic prison chaplains.

It took place in the rooms and with logistical support of the Community of Sant'Egidio in Würzburg. The meeting was also financially supported by the Katholische Gefängnisseelsorge in Deutschland e.V. (Catholic Prison Chaplaincy in Germany) and by Renovabis, which paid part of the expenses of the Eastern European participants.
