Mission Week

The community of the Seminary has joined the Church in the preparations for Mission Day.  We launched a week of activities, lasting from Monday 15th to Sunday 21st October 2012.  The chosen theme was: “Out of love, place yourselves at one another’s service” (Gal 5,14).  Prayers were said daily for the Church of a particular continent.  On Thursday 18th October, the Missionary Group visited the Minor Seminary and delivered a talk to the students about the parable of the mustard seed and the mission of Guatemala.  The following morning Mgr George Grima joined our community for the Holy Eucharist.  He shared with us his experience in the Missions.  He said that it is only faith in Jesus Christ which strenghens the missionary, fills him with courage and hope, and keeps him focused on the evangelisation which he is called to spread.  This applies to every Christian: the laity, the ordained priest and especially the missionary.
