New mission in Uruguay

Sunday, March 5, they were officially entrusted with the pastoral ministry of the parish of St. Elizabeth of Portugal, in the city of Paso de los Toros, 250 km from Montevideo.

In the photos, we see the community during the concelebrated Mass in the parish church and the laity of the six sub-stations welcoming them with renewed hope. The Bishop, Mons. Julio Bonino, invited them to "run to embrace life’s call”.

After 156 years, the Betharramite Religious  keep saying "Here I am”, in Uruguay.
