Santana de Parnaíba, São Paulo, Brazil -- Horizons for Evangelization
From April 4 to 6, the Sítio da Aroeira Conference Center organized a program entitled Horizons: Perspectives and challenges for Christians in the middle of the world. Directed to young professionals from ten Brazilian cities, it provided work-related insights drawn from the teachings in Pope Francis’ Apostolic Exhortation Evangelii gaudium.
Those attending reflected on various dimensions of the evangelizing effort: friendship, as a sign of authentic charity and a path towards God; initiatives aimed at teaching young people Christian values; the meaning and importance of sanctified work; and the family as a place for encountering God and for mutual service.
