A meeting with Bishop Sebastião Bandeira Coélho of Coroatá also was on the program. The visitors took part in the Eucharistic celebration on the 30th day of the death of the first bishop of Coroatá, Dom Reinaldo Pünder. All priests, religious and lay representatives of the diocese had been invited to this service. A beautiful experience was the encounter with the Pallottine Family. The lively spiritual exchange among Pallottine Fathers, Pallottine Sisters and UAC lay members, their cooperation in the pastoral and social engagement was very impressive.

"Our diverse talents and abilities, our differences in culture, nationality and age are assets for the richness of the community. Although we may be engaged in a variety of ministries, we all share the common call to apostolic discipleship in a community of the Catholic Apostolate of St. Vincent Pallotti."(OWL, 91)

"Our relationships with one another should be marked by a love that bears all, believes all and hopes for all, a love that is neither conceited nor jealous, which hurts no one, nor is embittered or resentful. It is never discouraged but remains patient and kind. It rejoices with others and shares their suffering. It is with this kind of love that we should help and support one another." (OWL, 90)
