Contact nr 2 – Letter to the friends of the French Sector

Voix d’Afrique was, until recently, the magazine of the French sector for families and friends of the White Fathers in France. It has recently been replaced by a publication in PDF format, entitled “Contact”, normally sent by e-mail. Containing articles written by the Missionaries of Africa that may be of interest to a wide audience, we are publishing it here, as well as a briefly translated version in English on the English site. In case of doubt about any of the information, please refer to the French original.
