Pope Francis is now just over a month away from starting his trip to Mozambique, Madagascar and Mauritius, in Africa. This trip is also significant for the Vincentian Family, as the Holy Father will visit, on September 8, the Vincentian work “the city of Good Friends” (Akamasoa), initated by the vincentian missionary Fr. Pedro Opeka.

During this month of August we will publish several articles on this work and the work done by the Vincentian Family in the area.
