Brazil: meeting with Saint Pedro Poveda Community of Taquaritinga

Around the Christmas celebrations, the communities of Poveda Cultural Center in Campinas and Saint Pedro Poveda Community, from a parish in the city of Taquaritinga, (north of São Paulo State) got together.

One of the projects of the Center community is "De mãos dadas", for the advancement of children in a situation of exclusion, inspired by the presence of St. Pedro Poveda in Guadix.

It really was a very special day, with the participation of a large group of friends and collaborators. At the Eucharist, toys and donations were offered for children's Christmas gifts. At the end of the Mass, the visiting community presented its rich pastoral activity. Poveda Center also gave an account of the activities of its various groups during the year.

The parish priest of Saint Pedro Poveda Community of Taquaritinga, who accompanied the group, wrote the following message: "Yesterday was a day full of graces and blessings.” “The project developed at Saint Pedro Poveda Chapel prepared a beautiful Christmas party. There was a nativity scene and the distribution of baskets for needy families: a total of 19. I praise and thank God for your existence and for the help you give us in our journey. Your charism is contagious in our entire parish community." 

In Rio de Janeiro, the Teresian School celebrated Christmas with a Eucharist, followed by a festive snack in which students and people close to the School participated.
