Friday, 21 October 2016 missionary animation  


Madrid (Agenzia Fides) – There are more than 13 thousand Spanish missionaries working all over the world. Among these, two lay missionaries have set up a shelter home for abandoned children in Bayaka, in southern Chad. We are talking about a nurse, a lay missionary, and his wife. This year World Mission Sunday 2016, in Spanish "Domund", is celebrated on Sunday, October 23. In Spain the theme is: "Leave your country" and wants to raise awareness upon the missionary task of the Church as well as urging everyone to reach out to others to proclaim the Gospel. The Day is celebrated every year around the world to remember, pray, honor and support the missionary activity of the Catholic Church. (AP) (Agenzia Fides 21/10/2016)
