Missions of CLM Italy in Argentina

Going out to meet the material and spiritual needs of the most needy people, a group of young adults from the Christian Life Movement (CLM) in Italy made a mission trip to Barrio Salas in Pilar, Argentina, during the days of 05th to 20th of August.

During the first week of these missions, the volunteers helped with the work of the local chapel of Our Lady de Caacupé, carrying out various painting and construction jobs and creating a mural of the Virgin Mary and the Good Shepherd accompanied by children and their sheep. The last day in Barrio Salas they prepared an Italian dinner for the local families, with all the ingredients brought from Italy.

The second part of the trip included walks and excursions, along with various meditations, moments of reflection and personal prayer in groups with the aim of living a true path of contemplation and spiritual life in the midst of God’s wonderful creation. They also participated in a meeting with the emevecistas from Argentina.

Accompanied by our brothers from the Italian community, the missionaries were invited to live, through the personal dedication of each one, an experience of integral faith in the encounter with others and with themselves under the loving presence of God.

Nicole Chiaretti, a member of the CLM Italy, tells us that “the reflections lived with the children and young people of the Barrio Salas, the recitation of the Rosaries and the walks in the middle of the woods, the thousand laughs and the games made every moment of these missions unforgettable, uniting moments of reflection and spiritual search and the joy of everyday life”.

Alessandro Pinto, volunteer, highlights that these missions “have been an intense time to share experiences and live the faith in a climate of deep friendship”.
