Madagascar: African Social Apostolate Province Coordinators meet and make plans for future

The African Assistancy Social Apostolate Coordinators and the directors of social centres held their annual meeting in Antananarivo, Madagascar from 12 to 18 August. They reviewed and updated themselves on the achievements made so far by the networks that they have been developing and made plans to strengthen and determine the response of African delegates during the coming years. They also visited Arrupe Centre and Ambiatibe, the venue of the martyrdom of Blessed Jacques Berthieu in 1896, who will be canonized in October 2012. The participants expressed their happiness on the progress made in the Social Apostolate ever since Fr Rigobert Minani became the full time conference coordinator of the Social Apostolate.
