Share the Mission:
In Malaga I am part of the Diocesan Missionary Council.
It is linked to O.P.M. (Pontifical Mission Societies) and promotes several missionary animation campaigns throughout the year. The most important is the one of October on World Mission Sunday.
Last October, the day began with a major exhibition called “El Domund al Descubierto” [The World Discovered]. It showed the missionary activity of the Church on the five continents. There was also information and formation provided by the missionaries with conferences, round tables, and testimonies … I shared my religious missionary experience in DR Congo radio.
Forming young people for the Mission:
An important activity that we organized as part of the mission delegation was the formation of a group of young people who wanted to be involved in the mission of Málaga Diocese in Venezuela. We gave them one formation day per month, using themes and stories and accompanying them on their way. The political situation in Venezuela did not allow some of them to leave. Hopefully later this can be done. Meanwhile we will continue to offer young people further opportunities for missionary commitment. The Mission Council organizes an annual meeting for all those who have been on a mission: priests, religious and laity. This day is well prepared. It helps us know one another and to plan joint actions.
Last October I participated in a missionary cooperation group formed by the Missionary Institutes of Spain in connection with the Spanish Episcopal Conference and the Pontifical Mission Societies [O. P. M.]. This is in view of providing on-going missionary animation in the dioceses. With these teams, we organize missionary tours and give a good witness of unity.
Two missionary proposals for youth this summer:
The Missionaries of Africa, and we Missionary Sisters of Our Lady of Africa, organize during the summer holidays two camps for children: in Tetouan in Morocco and Roquetas de Mar in Almería.
