Over 2,000 college students spread Gospel in Chile

.- More than 2,000 young people from 55 universities in Chile are bringing Christ to Chileans in January.

The college students are participating in a national mission Jan. 3-13 with the theme, “United at your table, Lord, let us enliven the Church in Chile.”

The young Chileans attended a Jan. 3 Mass of commissioning celebrated by Cardinal Francisco Javier Errazuriz, the outgoing Archbishop of Santiago, at the Marian Shrine of Maipu.

Each morning, the young people go door-to-door visiting families and sharing the Gospel, explain organizers of the mission.  In the afternoon, the students participate in the “social mission” by visiting hospitals, prisons, orphanages and retirement homes. 

The young people also participate in workshops for children, teens and adults in the “family mission.”

The national mission will also include processions, festivals and theatrical works, in which the entire community will participate.

The national mission first began in 2004 at the Pontifical Catholic University in Santiago. Each year it provides young people from across the country the opportunity to “spread the message of Christ” in the service of the Church.
