Comboni Missions Fall 2017

Mission Day in Covina

In a joint venture, the Comboni Missionaries and Maryknoll Missionaries invited youth groups in the Los Angeles area to spend a day reflecting on their missionary vocation to serve. About 46 young men and women, ages 15 to 25 responded to this call on June 17, 2017. Many attendants to this first retreat day came from the parishes where Fr. Jorge Ochoa celebrates Sunday Mass. Others came from the list of candi- dates that Deacon Leonel follows at the Maryknoll Mission Office. The

invitation also came to Holy Cross Church, the parish the Comboni Missionaries administer in South Central Los Angeles. About eight attendees from the group of Saint Sebastian carpooled and went to participate in this day of recollection at the Comboni Mission Center of Covina. Sister Norma joined the team of Fr. Jorge and Deacon Leonel. The young people who attended this retreat say they are looking forward to meeting a second time to plan a mission trip so they can experience mission firsthand.
