▪ On Nov. 16th, on diocesan level, the “Pastoral da Criança”, celebrated 30 years of dedication to pregnant women and mothers with infants in Timbiras. This project, supported by UNICEF and the Brazilian Bishops´ Conference, has saved and improved numerous lives of babies and infants and is carried out by many volunteers. Sr. Christine Schubert SAC had started this initiative 30 years ago by training volunteers in Timbiras and all over the diocese of Coroatá. Since then this work grew and flourished in many parishes. As she could not be present at the jubilee feast, she sent a candle, which was lit during the Eucharistic celebration, presided by Bishop Coadjutor Dom Sebastião.
