Help for the poorest, the missions and seminarians are among the Advent initiatives of the Vatican’s parish of Saint Anne, reported by L’Osservatore Romano on December 16, 2018.
The church’s parish priest, Father Bruno Silvestrini explained that during time of preparation for Christmas, parishioners distribute foods, clothes and meals every Friday and sell crafts in favor of the missions and seminarians.
The “Christian Mothers” Association also organizes initiatives for the poorest, in collaboration with the parish Caritas. The Vatican’s daily also listed the parish’s activities this year, among which were monthly pastoral meetings on the family, with the intervention of experts, and a free advice service on the marriage bond from the canonical, civil and criminal point of view.
Every week “cultural Wednesdays were held with conferences on art, history, music . . . and every month prayer meetings took place with the Master of Papal Liturgical Celebrations, Monsignor Guido Marini, which ended with a supplication to the Virgin “who undoes knots,” dear to the Pope. Finally, the Charismatic prayer group “You Are Peter,” met every Wednesday, encouraged by Pope Francis.
