2014-01-31

Pope Francis will bless 174 families belonging to the Neocatechumenal Way, and will leave their lives behind to become missionaries in Asia and Africa.

 

 

 

These families will make up 40 new missio ad gentes, small missionary groups that will settle in countries where the Church's presence is small. They include countries like Mongolia, China and Taiwan.

 

 

 

Each mission will be made up of three families, along with their children, a priest, a seminarian, and two single women. In all, between 30 and 40 people.

 

 

 

Pope Francis will also bless an additional 240 families that will take part in ongoing missions.

 

 

 

Overall, the Vatican expects about 10,000 members from the Neocatechumenal Way, including initiators, Kiko Argüello, Carmen Hernandez and father Mario Pezzi.

With the latest 40 groups, the number of Neocatechumenate missio ad gentes will rise to 92, spread out across the globe.
