Maracay (Agenzia Fides) - Msgr. Enrique Parravano, Bishop of Maracay, promotes the "Mosesan" project, Holy Week Movement, an initiative that aims to help children and adolescents aged 8 to 15 to better understand the message of Jesus Christ which the Church celebrates with particular solemnity during Holy Week, recalling his Passion, Death and Resurrection. Fifteen parishes of the diocese of Maracay were chosen for this project and received the visit of Bishop Parravano who explained to them the purpose of this project and motivated the participation of young people. The Holy Week Movement consists of developing various recreational, dynamic and catechetical activities during Holy Week, led by seminarians, who will share with children and young people the aspects of the Passion, Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ on which our faith is based. Mosesan was created with the aim of strengthening the transmission of faith that takes place in families and with the intention of marking the life of faith of children and young people through their encounter with Christ, in order to form ever more aware and strong Christians.
In the diocese of Trujillo, the IAM, Missionary Childhood and Adolescence of the diocese, also organized the so-called “Prelude of the Easter Triduum 2022”, which took place at the Juan Bautista Dalla Costa high school in Boconó. The motto "Let us not tire of doing good" (Gal 6: 9-10), the theme of Pope Francis' message for Lent, accompanied the different activities developed from Friday 25 to Sunday 27 March, in an experience that responds to the line of action of "Missionary Spirituality", provided for in the Pastoral Plan of the PMS. The "Prelude of the Easter Triduum" is a traditional activity in this Diocese, which on this occasion brought together 75 children from different parishes to strengthen one of the fundamental pillars of the formation of missionary children, spirituality, encouraging them to prepare to live deeply the Passion, Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ.
