500 expected for AEC Missions Congress 2019

by Renée Smith, rsmith.camsel@rcpos.org

The Antilles Episcopal Conference (AEC) will host its first Missions Congress for the region in September 2019. Pope Francis is calling upon the Universal Church to participate in Extraordinary Mission Month (October 2019). Next year marks the 100th anniversary of Benedict XV’s encyclical Maxium Illud, which is considered to be the charter of modern missions.

Following an annual plenary meeting in Rome for the bishops of the AEC, a proposal was made to host the Congress in the Archdiocese of Port of Spain from September 19 –22. The AEC Mission Congress will be guided by the theme of Extraordinary Mission Month—Sent and Baptized, the Church of Christ on Mission in the world.
