The campus ministry office of the Archdiocese of Santiago launched a Christmas campaign this week in order to encourage young people to recognize Christ in the city’s poor and to give them “gifts of love.”
In a press release, the office explained that with the project “we wish to turn our city into a table open to all and willing to welcome all of the stories and experiences which are intertwined during Christmas.”
The initiative of solidarity will begin on December 24, at 7:00pm in the evening, with a commissioning ceremony, celebrated by Cardinal Francisco Javier Errázuriz, Archbishop of Santiago.
Later young people from the different campus ministries of Santiago, together with their families, will go through the streets, subway stations, plazas, bridges and avenues attending to those most in need.
