The questionnaire of the synod “so Desafios pastorais da família no contexto da evangelização” was also explained.
The family remains the cell of life where human beings give birth and develop. In this third millennium, we are invited to take into consideration the importance of living together as a family and to rediscover its value and identity, both human and spiritual.   
Hugh SeenanFernando Perez 2014On the 29th June, the compound of the church of Inhamizua / Beira was full of joy and dance. There was something unusual on that Sunday Mass. Fathers Hugh Seenan and Fernando Pérez were celebrating respectively 25 years and 50 years of priestly ordination. The thanksgiving song was followed by many gifts from the parishioners where Hugo and Fernando worked. That day was also the official launch of the Friends of the Missionaries of Africa in Mozambique (AMAMO).
