Inauguration of the Chapel of St. Ambrose in the Municipality of Colombia (Colombia)


On the 11th of April, Bishop Froilán Casas of the diocese of Neiva (Colombia) blessed the Chapel of St. Ambrose and administered the Sacraments of Christian Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist) to a group of the faithful.

       Besides the Chapel (with all necessary things for worship), the new building also consists of a sacristy and a room for the priest who comes to this neighbourhood for celebrations.
This project was guided by Fr. Luis Alfredo Parra, CP with support from the Secretary General for Solidarity and Mission and also from the Congregation of Sisters of St. Peter Claver who donated the material. The construction was done by the faithful themselves.

       Accompanying the Bishop were Frs. Luis Alberto (on the left) and Joaquín Vargas (on the right) the provincial consultor for the Province of the Sacred Heart.
