A group of twenty-two young people from Youth for the
Third Millennium of Brazil participated in a Christmas mission in
the city of Maringa, which is located in the southern
portion of the country.

The missionaries, who spread the good
news from December 20-22, received a warm welcome from Father
Reginaldo Lima, pastor of the parishes of the Infant Child
Jesus of Prague and Saint Francis Xavier. During the three-day
event the missionaries met more than 800 people and encouraged
them to live Christmas with an authentic Christian spirit.
brave young apostles were mostly local, hailing from Maringá and
the nearby city of Curitiba. The parishioners were very grateful
for their efforts, joy, enthusiasm and dedication and many asked
them to come back and encourage them again. Their wish
will come true because another mission has already been organized
for Holy Week this year.
