• Throughout the morning and part of the afternoon, an audio-visual montage on the giant screen of the auditorium will allow you to remember some important moments in the life of the diocese.
Located in the heart of the Principality, above the Boulevard Princesse Charlotte, the Agora was designed and built to accommodate the entire Diocese. She will have to become the family home of an outgoing Church that goes to the men and women of her time to announce the Gospel to them.
Some figures on the Agora: 1.800 m2 of premises – car parks nearby (Gare, Novotel) – 2 public lifts (departure By Princess Charlotte) – a chapel with 30 seats – 5 rooms can accommodate from 8 to 130 people – 9 offices – a library – an archive room – 2 tisaneries – an apartment for the manager – two bedrooms.
