Brother Teófilo Minga assumes his new position



A new coordinator in Rome for the Mission ad Gentes Project

29/01/2010: General House

The Mission ad Gentes Project began in 2006 and today there are 48 brothers in 6 Asian countries assigned to 15 communities. Brother Teófilo took part in the Project at the beginning. He joined the first group going to Davao (Philippines) in August 2006 to follow a five months session before going to an Asian country. A month and a half after arriving at Davao, he was called by his Superiors to Rome to be the Religious Life Commission Secretary. He promoted – from that bureau – the Year of Spirituality throughout the Institute and he spread the message of Water from the Rock in many ways: different sessions, meetings, and lectures given in different places and languages. When he finished his service in this secretariat he was preparing to go back to Portugal (Ermesinde) when Providence changed his plans.

The General Council during its last session on the 9th January 2010 appointed Bro. Teófilo Minga as coordinator in Rome for the Asia Mission ad Gentes Project. The task entrusted to him is to establish relations with the civil and ecclesiastic authorities of the countries where the new foundations in Asia will establish, to strengthen the existing foundations and to support from Rome the brothers in the Mission, working closely with Brother Superior general and his Council.
