Around 70 missionaries, mostly between 17 and 22 years old, from our Schools in Uruguay, travelled the roads and visited the homes of the people. Different activities were held: games with children, course of animators for the youngsters, bingo for the families, rosary in the cemetery, visit to old-age homes, sports tournament, fair. The idea was to reach from different manners to the people and to be dedicated to all.

As an image to remember: the grandmother Antonia who, while saying goodbye, said: “thank you for giving me hope again and making me useful”.
