I was blessed to be able to attend the ordination and first solemn Mass of Father Fábio, who will spend this coming year serving the parish and rural chapels in Varre Saí, the remote mountain town in the interior of the diocese. It was a joyful occasion for his family, colleagues and the community.
We are very grateful for the generous support from our donors offered during our Advent fundraiser. We have received a little more than half of what we aimed for, which is a huge help, and we sent the accumulated donations to Brazil last week.
However the additional funds are still hoped for, as this will help pay for the computers, as well as the increased food bill at the seminary - the incoming class this year is 17 seminarians, the largest in a while! Please help as you can, and share this need with friends or colleagues who might be able to chip in.
Do please keep all the faithful, clergy and seminarians of the Apostolic Administration in your prayers!
Wishing you all a blessed 2022, especially in the face of so many adversities.
