On Sunday, May 6, the Missionary Festival was held in the “Love of God” nursery in the village of Regla. In the celebration, which began with the Holy Mass presided over by Msgr. Juan García, Archbishop of Havana, there were also raffles, games and several outlets of food and school supplies were enabled for children.
The festival was attended by the religious and the seglar movement of the Congregation with the little ones and their parents. To an encounter that constituted a festival of growth in solidarity, and allowed to have a moment of leisure and fraternal sharing among all present, added the joy of the youngest in the neighborhood who did not want to miss that opportunity.
This holiday takes place every year in the 19 countries where the Love of God family is present. The initiative is part of the congregation’s solidarity campaign to send monetary aid to some nations. This time, the funds raised will go to the brother country of Cape Verde.
Just the space where this festival could be performed and which today constitutes the nursery “Love of God”, was the fruit of a campaign of solidarity in 1997.
