On June 5, 2023, the friars from the Austrian portion of the Provincial Custody of St. Leopold and St. Nicolas of Flüe in Austria-Switzerland gathered for a fraternal meeting at their friary in Vienna.

In the morning, Friar Marek PUČALÍK gave a detailed lecture on the life of St. Agnes of Bohemia and the Order of the Knights of the Cross with the Red Star which she founded. The meeting was attended by all of the friars of the friaries in Asparn, Graz, Neunkirchen and Vienna, Austria.
In the afternoon, the friars spent some fraternal time together. Afterwards, they went on a guided tour the recently renovated Austrian Parliament. The outing gave the friars a chance to learn more about the Austrian democratic system. The fraternal meeting concluded with a common supper, at which time the friars continued to enjoy fraternal time together.
