Gratitude is extended to God and the committed missionaries for their faithful and enthusiastic service. The Rector Major anticipates that the recent experiences of hope will be further reinforced by two upcoming events: the Special Synod of African Bishops and the beatification of Sister Maddalena Caterina Morano, a Daughter of Mary Help of Christians.
