ARGENTINA, Carlos Ricciardi •
On Sunday, 21 January, the Family Missions departed from the Liberation Shrine and the Family House of La Plata to Ranchos, in the Province of Buenos Aires. This area of only 8,000 residents, is 80 km from La Plata, and will be welcoming these missionary families for a second time.
Before departing, they went to the Shrine to pray, to sing, and to leave the name of every missionary in the jar so the Blessed Mother will guide and accompany them, just like it has been done these twenty years of mission. 103 people, including eight couples, went out with a missionary commitment.
On Saturday, 27 January, four couples and other missionaries who participated in other Family Missions these 20 years, will also travel to Ranchos for the mission’s concluding celebration.
We accompany them from La Plata and from many other parts of the world.
