Families of the Lay Association of the Missionaries of Africa in Zambia, MIMSAF, came together to celebrate their annual event “Family Day” on 3rd January 2015 at St Lawrence Parish, Lusaka where Fr. Toon van Kessel is Parish Priest. The occasion was prayerful and educative. Day activities included Mass which was celebrated by the Provincial, Fr. Christopher Chileshe and concelebrated by Fr. Mark Nsanzurwimo and MIMSAF Chaplain Fr. Owino D. Vitalis.

Input on the mission of the Missionaries of Africa facilitated by the Provincial Fr. Christopher Chileshe.  “In 2010, he said, we described ourselves as “Men of hope”; we meditate on Christ’s incarnation and are inspired by Him to proclaim and promote a better world”. He described the mission around two themes. Encounter / Dialogue with cultures different from Christianity (ED) and Justice and Peace, Integrity of Creation (JPIC). The input was described as being very informative and gave a better understanding of what the Missionaries of Africa are involved in”. 

The provincial also reminded and invited the MIMSAF Family to join the Religious in celebrating the year of Consecrated life which has been declared by Pope Francis. The Launch for Lusaka Archdiocese is scheduled for 7th February, 2015 at the Marian Shrine and MIMSAF was encouraged to take part.
