After the storm Idai in Mozambique the Mission goes on

Filipino Divine Word Missionaries working in Mozambique, Fr Ralp Montalban SVD and Fr Phil Pinalgan SVD resume their sacramental ministries and evangelisation services to the devastated communities by the cyclone Idai.

Cyclone Idai ravaged several countries in the southern part of the African continent including Mozambique last March 4 – 21 2019. International news organisation reports fatalities to have reached more than 1 000.
