Montreal (Agenzia Fides) - From March 11 to 15, the Directors of the Pontifical Mission Societies (PMS) in America and the Caribbean will meet in Montreal, Canada, in the "Village of St. Martin," a spiritual retreat house of the Jesuits. This meeting is specifically designed to plan the work of the American Congress of Missions and/or Latin American Missionary Congress (CAM 4-COMLA 9) to be held in the city of Maracaibo, Venezuela, from 26 November to 1 December.
"This eighth meeting-says to Fides father Guillermo Alberto Morales Martinez, National Director of the Pontifical Mission Societies in Mexico and coordinator of the work of the Pontifical Mission Societies in America, - the strong point will be "thematic analysis, the guidelines, the number of forums to be held at the Congress of Venezuela (CAM 4-COMLA 9). On the other hand, the proposed objectives will have to be approved and one will see the curriculum of each of the speakers to ensure the quality that the Congress will have."
A note sent to Fides by the PMS of Mexico also reports that all the national directors of the Pontifical Mission Societies in America will be present and as a special guest, Father Vito Del Prete, General Secretary of the Pontifical Missionary Union (PMU), who will present a work that concerns the paradigms of the new evangelization in mission Ad Gentes.
