ARGENTINA, by Andrea Fernández •
Schoenstatt has been in Villa Elisa for ten years, and therefore in the context of celebrating those ten years in Villa Elisa, province of Entre Ríos, several activities took place accompanied by the Auxiliary MTA from the Diocese of Concordia, which travels to different city institutions.
On Monday, 15 August, Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Mother, 1,000 Hail Marys were prayed culminating with a procession to the parish and the celebration of the Holy Mass.
On Thursday, 18 August, the tenth anniversary and date of the blessing the wayside shrine of Our Lady of Schoenstatt in Villa Elisa, a Eucharistic celebration marked the event. During the Holy Mass, two new child missionaries (one will go out among 5 year-old kindergarteners) were commissioned, then the blessing and enthronement of the Unity Cross, and finally the blessing of four MTA pictures for different institutions.
And of course there had to be a birthday cake, which those who attended gladly shared.
