.- The national office of the Pontifical Mission Societies in Peru announced recently that preparations are being made for their 2nd annual Holy Childhood Congress, the theme of which will center around Immaculate Mary leading to the Eucharist and the Eucharist, in turn, leading to Mission. Organizers of the August 4th through 7th event to be held in Trujillo, Peru are anticipating nearly 2,000 school-aged children from Holy Childhood groups across the country to take part in the congress.
The Family Rosary Apostolate Office of the Peruvian Bishops’ Conference is likewise launching an event to get young people more involved in their faith with an upcoming competition called, “Try, prayer works!”
Children from schools, parishes or other movements are invited to join the competition by submitting poems, stories, artwork, videos or photographs depicting the living out in daily life of virtues taught by Jesus to promote peace in society.
Winners will be chosen by a panel from the Family Rosary Apostolate. More information can be found by writing: [email protected]
