Chilean diocese organizes Social Week: “The love of Christ impels us”

.- The Diocese of Iquique (Chile) will hold a Social Week August 11-18 in order to train “volunteers in each one of the organizations that are part of our social ministry.”  The diocesan director of social ministry, Marcos Rojas, said, “Whoever feels the love of the Lord who saves us spring up in his heart, cannot remain unconcerned without responding.”

Among the activities planned for the Social Week include a workshop on the social teaching of the Church, aimed at business leaders in order to encourage them to “participate in the different activities of our Church,” Rojas said.

A special Mass will also be celebrated on August 15, the feast of the Assumption, with Bishop Antonio Ordenes Fernandez of Iquique presiding.

Staff members of the diocesan social ministry office will participate in a workshop on how to make use of government resources.  On August 18 a Mass for the Day of National Solidarity, dedicated to St. Alberto Hurtado, will be celebrated.
