Description We will present the results of our qualitative study of the life-quality of highly skilled migrants in Brno. We will thematise the issue of homemaking in the new socio-space and its relation to social integration. Particularly we will focus our attention on answering the question, why and how the Brno international Catholic community is able to facilitate quick homemaking of its members while at the same time it does not mediate their integration into the wider society. The crucial role of community, friendship, and shared experience of relocation among international Catholics, along with the significance of the language barrier and the uncertainty concerning the majority's attitude towards Catholicism, will be demonstrated.
