On August 28, the prayer workshop organized by the Center for Spirituality and Formation of Fondacio closed with the first online Eucharist of Fondacio.
The Winter Prayer Workshop was divided into four sessions, held on July 17 and 31 and August 14 and 28 respectively.
This last session focused on prayer through the community dimension of the Eucharist. In addition, it was the first time that a mass was organized online, with the participation of the Dominican priest Miguel Ángel Ríos, and was broadcast from the interior chapel of the convent of Santo Domingo el Mayor, in the center of Santiago.
For this last closing meeting, as on previous occasions, about thirty people were present, who actively participated in the various activities proposed, including sharing in small groups during the Eucharist, which allowed participants to show what they had experienced during this workshop.
Fondacio in Chile since 1980
Fondacio’s mission in Chile is to act against the challenges of this time as Christ would do in our place.
Community experience offers spiritual and human growth. In addition, we train the Young Initiators of Continental Change (IFF America).
Our programs work with children and preteens (Biblioteca Los Almendros), the disabled (Centro Ocupacional Hortiterapeutico), vulnerable families (“Un Hogar mas digno”, “Jesus Carpintero”, “Reciclo”, ), people with street (“Mi Proximo”) and all people with limited resources.
There is a Children’s Pastoral (6 to 12 years old), different fraternities open to people of all ages (Santiago Gospel, Oasis, Sticks of Hope, Center, etc.) and several community groups of Seniors (people over 70 years). Everyone is invited to participate in various community meetings and retreats throughout the year.
Ignacio Troncoso is responsible for Fondacio Chile, the second responsible is Consuelo Silva. The other members of the Council are: Paula Vargas, Francisco Ríos, Lisette Catarino, Rafael Arcos and Luis de la Vega.
