Missionary Youth and Family went on “Megamissions” this Holy Week with more than 20,000 missionaries evangelizing various places around the world.
The director of Missionary Youth and Family in Mexico and Central America, Brenda Treviño, said that “as part of our 30th anniversary, we have concluded this 2023 Megamission with great joy in our hearts. There were more than 12,000 of us missionaries in Mexico and 20,000 in total throughout the world, of 24 nationalities who joined this work of evangelization.”
Missionary Youth and Family is an apostolate of Regnum Christi, an international Catholic movement that is made up of families, laypeople, consecrated persons, and priests of the Legionaries of Christ.
Speaking with ACI Prensa, CNA’s Spanish-language news partner, Treviño said that “this year’s motto was: ‘Thousands of stories, one mission,’” since these 30 years have been notable for “endless stories, communities visited, encounters with Christ, and of testimonies that are summarized in a single mission: ‘Go into all the world and preach the Gospel’ (Mk 16:15).”
