Archdiocese of Havana announced that on September 8th, the feast of the
patroness of Cuba, Our Lady of Charity, a new pastoral plan will be
implemented in order to promote a spiritual renewal among the faithful.
“The previous Plan had as its priority the formation of (new) Christian faithful, but in a well-organized national survey, the Catholics of Cuba have overwhelmingly expressed their view that Catholics are need of spirituality,” Cardinal Jaime Ortega, Archbishop of Havana, said in an interview published by the archdiocesan magazine.
The cardinal said the plan also aims to encourage the faithful to assume a more active and leading role in the transformation of Cuban society.
Likewise, reports say that it will also foster the Church’s efforts at evangelization and pastoral action.
