John the Baptist

Who we are

Koinonia John the Baptist is a community at the service of the New Evangelization established as a private association of the faithful, belonging to the Catholic Church and canonically approved, it has several thousand members including families, consecrated men and women and priests. It was founded in 1979 from the initiative of a Catholic priest Ricardo Argañaraz who, together with a small nucleus, responding to the call of the Lord Jesus to leave everything to follow him, went up to a small mountain town in the Vicentino (Italy), called Camparmò. There they began a consecrated life dedicated to prayer, work and study. In the solitude of the beginnings, a strong experience of prayer, of listening to the Word of God, of brotherly love and of the provident hand of the Father who took care of them in every detail of their life, took root in them.
Over the years, Koinonia John the Baptist has spread from Camparmò throughout Europe and in various countries of the world such as South Africa, Mexico, the United States and India.
Koinonia is made up of several communities of life and alliance, scattered over the various continents, united in a single structure called the Federation of Koinonia John the Baptist. Each individual Koinonia is constituted as a center of evangelization and life, where members periodically gather to grow in the life of faith and in formation for evangelization.
The name Koinonia John the Baptist indicates the guiding lines of the community, its being and its doing: a people of friends called to evangelize in the power of the Holy Spirit following the example of John the Baptist who testified and pointed out Jesus.
