Fogo: “Catholic Church on the island and the Diocese of Santiago are richer with the creation of another parish” – Cardinal

São Filipe, Nov 29 (Inforpress) – The Catholic Church on the island of Fogo and the Diocese of Santiago are “richer” with the creation of the new Nossa Senhora de Fatima parish, based in Ponta Verde, North São Filipe.

The statement is by Cardinal Arlindo Furtado who Sunday, the 28th, celebrated the Mass which marked the set up of the Our Lady of Fatima Parish, which arose with the breakdown of the then São Lourenço Parish.

“Ponta Verde is developing and creating a pole of development, teaching and human settlement and with prospects for the future,” said Dom Arlindo, stressing that in this context of growth the church must have a “signalful presence”, and the creation of the parish gives “another perspective” of growth and “capacity for evangelization”.

“Now we have some priestly vocations which allow decentralizing and distributing tasks to encourage increasing participation of the population,” said Don Arlindo Furtado, noting that this was all that contributed to the creation of the new parish, whose day will be marked on November 28.
