.- Yesterday, the Bishops’ Conference of Uruguay opened its first Plenary Assembly of 2010 in the Uruguayan city of Florida. The meeting runs April 14-21.

According to a press release, the bishops will break from their meeting on April 19 in order to participate in the “national pilgrimage to Our Lady of Verdun in the town of Minas.”

“All the bishops will participate that day at 10 a.m. in a Mass of thanksgiving for the 50th anniversary of the creation of the Diocese of Minas.  At that time, “the church dedicated to the Virgin Mary on the hill of Verdun will be declared a national shrine.”

During their assembly, the bishops will discuss the implementation of the Great Continental Mission launched by the Latin American Bishops’ Council at its 2007 meeting in Aparecida, Brazil.

They will also discuss the closing of the Year for Priests in Uruguay, set for May 12 and 13.  The event will culminate with a Mass at the National Eucharistic Shrine on Mount Victoria in Montevideo.  All priests in Uruguay will be invited to attend.
