Heralds Worldwide


 

Congresses on the Holy Church

“Behold how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell in unity” (Ps 133:1). Doing justice to these words of the Holy Scriptures, young people and adults from all over Brazil and the world flocked to the formation Houses of Tabor and Mount Carmel in Caieiras (SP) during the last weeks of July, in order to participate in the time-honoured congresses for the male sector (photos 1 and 2), the female sector (photos 3 and 4) and for the cooperators of the Heralds of the Gospel (photos 5 to 7).

The three congresses were based on the theme of the Holy Church, giving participants the opportunity to gain a deeper knowledge of this Mother who, owing to the promise of immortality she received from her Divine Founder – “The gates of hell shall not prevail against it” (Mt 16:18) – has passed unscathed and immaculate through the fiercest battles, both internal and external, that have been waged against her.

Lectures, theatrical productions, study circles, Masses, Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and processional Rosaries were some of the activities that filled these days with blessed and joyful fellowship, so that participants could return to their duties with renewed vigour.
