Inauguration of an Exposition at the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross
Bishop Alvaro del Portillo and Africa was the topic chosen by the Harambee Africa International association for a photographic exhibition commemorating the centennial of Bishop del Portillo’s birth. Twenty large panels of photographs and “infographs,” installed in the hallways of the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross, offered students, teachers and visitors information about various social and educational initiatives developed on the African continent thanks to the impetus of St. Josemaría’s successor. Four of these projects will be financed thanks to the collection of funds organized in connection with the upcoming beatification. The exposition included the photographic collection Born in the Congo, by the photographer Ismael Martinez Sanchez. This is a visual documentary of daily life in Kinshasa, in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
