They also had the opportunity to experience the joy of missionary works in the province with the help of Fra Angelo Brences. The journey to the mission station took three hours – two hours in a four-wheeler truck and an hour by a motorboat. They were engaged with the mobile catechism at the chapel.

To cap the event, they shared their missionary experiences animated by Fra Paul. He also inspired the brothers with his experience in Italy.

With commendable effort and support of the Custody, this year’s gathering was a huge success.
