On 4 October, in the church of San Salvatore in Onda in Rome, the Pallottine family initiated the missionary month of the year 2020. The common prayer gathered representatives of the Pallottine General Governments, the Roman communities and lay members of the Union.

In his homily, the main celebrant, Fr Romualdo Uzabumwana SAC, expressed his gratitude to God for the gift of missionary vocations and for the Pallottine mission places. He thanked the missionaries and all the benefactors who are supporting the missions.

In this year, the missionary month is rich in initiatives: every Wednesday, members of the Italian communities will gather to worship the Blessed Sacrament, pray the rosary and celebrate the Eucharist. There will also be an opportunity to support mission countries with material assistance.

On behalf of our Congregation, the main animators of the activities undertaken are Sister Bożena Olszewska, member of the Missionary Commission and Sister Honorata Lyimo, General Councillor.

"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)
