Fiftieth anniversary of the start of Opus Dei’s apostolic work in Paraguay

For the 50th anniversary of the start of Opus Dei’s activities in Paraguay, a commemorative ceremony was held in Asunción, with some 450 people attending. During the event, held in the Mariscal Lopez Conference Center, the documentary “St. Josemaría and Paraguay: Testimonies,” was presented. Taking part was the Vicar of Opus Dei for Paraguay, Rev. Luis Caballero; the producer of the documentary, Juan Martín Erath; and a local journalist, Patricia Lafuente, who offered her testimony on the positive influence of the message of St. Josemaría in her own life.

Stable work of Opus Dei in Paraguay began on January 21, 1962, by the express wish of the founder and at the request of the Apostolic Nuncio, Archbishop Carlo Martini, who was a close friend of the Venerable Servant of God, Alvaro del Portillo. Many initiatives have been begun in Paraguay by faithful of Opus Dei in these past fifty years. These include university residences in Asunción, formational centers for professionals, young people’s clubs, and a number of educational and social undertakings.
