One of the things I inherited from my predecessor Fr. Tom Wright, was the program he started.  He had a great vision for the new districts that were coming up. He saw that they needed to find avenues to raise funds for themselves and so he opened doors to mostly SMA African priests. We call it “supply” program.

The 21st General Assembly opened in Rome this Tuesday, April 30. The previous day, each delegate introduced himself/herself with a symbolic object. Many small flags remind us that the SMA has flourished in four different continents. It was a great joy for all to meet after sometimes and for others after many years of separation. They are 46 participants including two lay representatives from the four corners of the world. Colorful assembly, where young and old are happy to take part in this event for the Society of African Missions (SMA). For the first time, in the history of SMA, 50% of the members of this Assembly are participating for the first time in this gathering.

Dear Sisters and Brothers,
A word of welcome:
It is a great pleasure and privilege for me to welcome all of you participants to this 21st General Assembly of the Society of African Missions. We have twenty-one “ex officio”– Marcos Delgado represents Spain in an official capacity in place of Rafael Marco, who is indisposed - and twenty-three elected delegates to this Assembly. We come from seventeen existing Units and nineteen countries, reflecting the broad international character of this missionary family. As well as those present in this room, I welcome also all those who are following us on live streaming. For the first time, the opening address is being live streamed for all members and supporters to engage with us. I ask you to accompany us with your prayers throughout the coming weeks. Each day there will be a media event summarising the main elements of the day.
