Five Redemptorist Missionaries to attend the Special Synod in October 2019

(Rome) Pope Francis has announced the delegates who will be participating in the Special Synod on the Amazon, which will take place in Rome from October 6 – 27. Among the participants are five Redemptorist Missionaries, all from the Pan-Amazon Region. They are:
1.      Very Rev. Jose Amarildo Luciano da Silva, C.Ss.R., Vice-Provincial Superior of                            Manaus, Brazil

2.      Most Rev. Waldo Ruben Barrionueva Ramírez, C.Ss.R., Bishop of Reyes, Bolivia

3.      Most Rev. Francisco Antonio Ceballos Escobar, C.Ss.R., Bishop of Puerto                     Carreño, Colombia

4.      Most Rev. Zenildo Luiz Pereira da Siloa, C.Ss.R., Bishop of Borba, Brazil

5.      Most Rev. Marian Marek Piątek, C.Ss.R., Bishop of Coari, Brazil

All of these Redemptorist Missionaries are serving in the Pan-Amazon Region. The four Bishops are serving in missionary dioceses, prelacies or vicariates.
The Special Synod is addressing concerns which are vital to the continued care of our common home in the spirit of Laudato Si. As our confreres gather with the other delegates from all over the world, and especially with the delegates from the Pan-Amazon Region, let us pray for them, and for Pope Francis. It is important that we also promote prayer for this Synod in every one of our Churches, especially during the whole month of October.
Fr. Michael Brehl, CSsR.
Superior General.
