Born of the spirit of World Youth Day in Canada, “Salt and Light” is a unique instrument of evangelization. It is dedicated to being – and helping to be – the Salt of the Earth and the Light of the world. Our mission is to proclaim Jesus Christ and the joy of the Gospel in Canada and around the world by presenting stories that inspire hope and bring people closer to Christ and the Catholic Faith.

This week in the magazine “Église en Sortie”, we are having a conversation with Father Gilles Barette on the history and work of the fathers and brothers of the Society of Missionaries of Africa (White Fathers). (…) In the third part of the program, Francis Denis receives Sister Rita Toutant from the missionary Sisters of Notre-Dame d’Afrique to talk about the history and mission of this community at the time of the celebration of their 150th anniversary.

Conference on Cardinal Paul Zoungrana

As part of the conferences organized by the Roman Committee to prepare the 150th anniversary of the founding of our Lavigerie Family, Father Jacques Sidibe tells us about “Paul Zoungrana, a Pastor figure, one of the fruits of the work of evangelization of the Sons and Daughters of Cardinal Lavigerie. ” (in French)

Jacques Sidibe is a priest of the diocese of Ouagadougou, ordained in 1999. After a few years of pastoral ministry in a parish, Jacques is sent to Rome for studies, then teaches in two major seminaries. He is received in our community in Rome in 2018 while taking a time of sabbatical at the Urbaniana, when his bishop asks him to take advantage of his presence with us to work on Cardinal Paul Zoungrana, M.Afr., an emblematic figure of the Church of Burkina Faso, as his diocese is preparing to celebrate the 100th anniversary of his birth.
