Bogotà (Agenzia Fides) - From 27 to 30 August the church all over the American continent will be present in Bogotà to celebrate the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy for Latin America and the Caribbean. There will also be delegations of the US Catholic Church and Canada.
The continental Celebration of the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy was convoked and organized jointly by the Pontifical Commission for Latin America (CAL) and the Latin American Episcopal Council (CELAM), in contact and collaboration with episcopates in the United States and Canada.
The celebration proposes living this “year of grace” as a renewed impetus to the continental mission, especially in light of the Aparecida document and the Apostolic Exhortation Evangelii Gaudium.
Another major moment of the Celebration will be dedicated to the American saints, "witnesses of mercy" to gather up their legacy and consider the ways they edify the Church today and mark her mission. (CE) (Agenzia Fides, 12/08/2016)
