Santiago, Chile, Mar 20, 2019 / 23:31 pm
For six years, Fr. Marcio Toniazzo has worked as the director of immigration services for the Archdiocese of Santiago in Chile.
In that time, he says he has witnessed "a good marriage…between migration and Chile," in which "both [have] had to reinvent themselves."
Toniazzo, a priest with the Congregation of the Missionaries of Saint Charles Scalabrinians, spoke with ACI Prensa, CNA's Spanish language sister agency, as he concludes his work in the Latin American country.
He said that in his work to help foreigners integrate and assimilate in Chilean culture, he has found that "God was providential with the Church in Chile, because migration is what is revitalizing the Church in the midst of its crisis."
