In the 2003 the then National President Antonio Diella has aimed of bringing still more the Salus members and in particular to the volunteers who provide their service there.
For this reason the Self Service was born, the first floor of Salus, it can accommodate up to 250 guests for each tour of duty. Also the Hospitality the Immaculate Heart of Mary trainees and the Sanctuary trainees can enjoy meals.
Following an agreement with the Diocese of Lourdes are also hosted daily the homeless of the area.
Give an opportunity at the staff service to have dinner in the Salus rationalizes the use of time, avoiding useless shifts in hotels during the long day of pilgrimage.
Meal times are schedule based on the needs of the volunteers:
- Breakfast from 5.30 a.m. to 09.00 a.m.
- Lunch from 11.00 a.m. to 02.00 p.m.
- Dinner from 06.00 p.m. to 09.00 p.m.
The self also becomes a meeting place for dialogue, of the life of the pilgrimage.
The prices charged for the various drinks are included, again to respond to the suggestion the spirit of association.
