Missionary Congress, Johannesburg, South Africa


EnlargeBy Michel Meunier, M.Afr
25th – 26th October 2014
On Saturday and Sunday, from 9am to 4pm, around 250 people came from fifty (50) different parishes (out of 120 parishes in the whole archdiocese). Not bad, for a first time! But we got the quality, if not the expected quantity: we had aimed at five delegates from each parish, which would have amounted to 600! The M.Afr who took part were Jan DeGroef (Bishop), Didier Michon, Christophe Boyer, Martin Somda (stagiaire), Seán O’Leary and Michel Meunier.
The AIMS of the Congress were:
  • to explore ways for us, the Church, to fulfil our vocation of proclaiming the Gospel / Mission
  • to move from maintenance to being on mission (enlarge our tent)
  • to celebrate our baptismal call together
  • to take back to our parishes the motivation to move forward on mission
