Jordanésia, a town about forty minutes from São Paulo, hosted a mission from October 11th to the 13th. The missionaries were members of Youth for the Third Millennium. The mission was in commemoration of our Lady of Concepción de Aparecida, the patroness of Brazil. Holy Cross parish very generously put the young people up for the weekend.

The Forty-five missionaries hailed from the cities of São Paulo, Campinas, Itu and Jundiaí. The young people hit the streets to evangelize on the morning of Saturday the 12th, after the sending Mass celebrated by the pastor of Holy Cross parish.

Throughout the weekend the missionaries visited 320 families, 70% of whom were Catholic. The mission concluded with a Mass celebrated at Holy Cross parish, where the pastor thanked the missionaries for their generosity and faith. The young people offered him a painting of our Lady of Guadalupe in thanksgiving.

That evening Father Peter Shekelton, LC, celebrated Mass for the people of Jordanésia who received the missionaries with such open arms.
