BRAZIL, JUMAS Porto Alegre •
Apostolic fruitfulness! Those words best summarize the new JUMAS POA(Boys’ Youth Porte Alegre) project, whose first edition took place on 17 February 2018. —
The Schoenstatt Family helped with raising funds along with Father Inácio, pastor of Our Lady of Assumption Parish, where the food was prepared, provided the great help necessary to carry out this project. The menu consisted of rice, pasta, and chicken, and pineapple juice. After preparation with youths from JUMAS (Boys’ Youth) who “got to work”, stockpots were delivered to a total of seventy street people located in the center of Porto Alegre. Besides the food, they were given prayer cards of the MTA and the Father and Founder.
JUMAS POA planned this project, since the previous year, they had been thinking precisely on the apostolic fruitfulness of the “New Man”, ideal they wanted to live.
It was a unique experience! Seeing someone hungry and lacking love motivates our apostolate.
