Sunday, October 21. Surely this will be a memorable date for the Parish of Loreto in Guayaquil (Ecuador). That day Father Reinhard, Servant Priest of the Home of the Mother, took possession of the Parish of Loreto. The act took place at 8 a.m. and was presided by the Vicar of the North Zone of Guayaquil, Father Alfonso Avilés.
23 years after the first pilgrimage of the Home to the Holy Land, in which the first three Servant Sisters made their vows in the house of Our Lady in Nazareth, the Home has returned to visit the Holy Land. From October 6-13, a group of Servant Brothers, Sisters and lay members, with Father Rafael at the head, have been at pilgrimage in the places that were blessed by the presence of the Lord and Our Lady.
