Pastoral Trips

During the past six months, Bishop Echevarría had the opportunity to visit three European countries and to travel to the city of Cagliari, Sardinia, Italy.

On the 29th and 30th of January, the Prelate was in Brussels, where he encouraged the development of the apostolic work which the faithful of Opus Dei are carrying out in that country.

After Holy Week, on April 26, Bishop Echevarría traveled to Ljubljana, Slovenia. There he had get-togethers with the people of the Prelature in that country, and with a good number of cooperators and friends who take part in Opus Dei’s formational activities. He was also received by the Archbishop of Ljubljana. From Slovenia he went to Zagreb, Croatia, where he visited the Cathedral and then went to various parts of the city to meet with several persons. On April 29, he returned to Rome.

Finally, on June 18, Bishop Echevarría was in Sardinia. Right after his arrival he met with a group of diocesan priests, and suggested to them various ways to grow in their love for God, for the Church, and for the Pope. He also had a dialogue with people who take part in activities at the Asibir Cultural Center and the Castello Academy. Later he visited the Shrine of the Madonna di Bonaria, the Patroness of the Island. Finally, in the Hotel Mediterraneo, he had get-together with many families who came from all over the Island.
