In our March newsletter, we share about our pastoral ministry among the local people in Kasait. The Jesuit priests in Kasait take turns in ministering the sacraments in Neran, Lanumate and surrounding villages, and in the main parish in Liquiça.  With our humble contributions, the local church is growing, and in this environment our other works can take root and grow as well.

Fr João Felgueiras SJ. Jesuit. Missionary.

2016-09-10-padre-jf-95th-aniversario

In this September-October issue of our newsletter, we share something of the life of Fr João Felgueiras SJ, a Portuguese Jesuit missionary who arrived in what was then called Portuguese Timor in 1971.

Forty-five years later, Fr Felgueiras remains as dedicated to the people of his adopted country as when he refused to leave Timor during the conflict in the 1970s. Timor-Leste President Taur Matan Ruak awarded Fr Felgueiras a medal of merit on June 10, a day after the priest’s 95th birthday, in recognition of his contribution to the building of the nation.
