The FSPs of La Paz commemorated the Institutes Centenary of foundation with a solemn Eucharistic Liturgy in which many employees, friends and book center clients participated. The Mass was celebrated by Bishop Fernando Bascopé Mull, Bishop for the Bolivian Military. In his homily, the Bishop spoke of the meaning of a centenary and of the contribution the Pauline mission has made to the Church. He also thanked the Lord for the beauty of the Pauline charism, which proclaims the truth of the Gospel to everyone.
Afterward, Bishop Giambattista Diquattro, Apostolic Nuncio to Bolivia, congratulated the FSPs for what the Institute has done in the country and throughout the world. The local media gave ample news coverage to this event and to other initiatives organized by our sisters to celebrate it. The media exposure triggered a flood of congratulations from people expressing their gratitude toward the Daughters of St. Paul and appreciation of their mission in Bolivia. Our sisters say this was a very meaningful experience for them and that it challenges them to make an even greater commitment to serving the flock entrusted to their care.
