Taking advantage of digital forms of communication, the Daughters of St. Paul of Nairobi organized an online seminar on the theme of mission to the people to help raise awareness about World Mission Day. The event, in which more than 600 people participated, was an excellent opportunity to address the challenges of Covid-19 by placing digital technology at the service of the Gospel.
Two Consolata missionaries with experience in Colombia and Brazil were invited to offer viewers their input on the following themes:
– Biblical-Pastoral Approach to the Mission to the People in light of the Message of Pope Francis for World Mission Day, by Fr. Joakim Kamau.
– Presentation of the book Freedom and Trinity: Pastoral Perspectives for Today’s World, by Fr. Nicola Fogliaco.
The initiative, the result of collaboration between our different apostolic sectors in Nairobi, represents a new and creative way of holding Pauline encounters and served to underscore digital technology as an important communication strategy. In her address to the participants, Sr. Anna Caiazza, Superior General of the Daughters of St. Paul, said: “This is truly the time to carry out our mission through digital forms of evangelization, which allow us to speak to others by means of the media languages they use most frequently.”
