SOFIA Network:

Pastoral work

For us, pastoral and social interventions are intrinsically linked. Therefore, SOFIA also promotes the pastoral development projects of the Salvatorian missionaries.

This has to do first of all with the formation of about 500 young Salvatorian missionaries in Africa and in Asia. This investment in future religious leaders will have a positive impact on the Catholic Church and society in general: well-trained Salvatorians can better live their charism as apostles and invite the laity to do the same, helping them to mature in their faith. At the same time, they are enabled to assist people better, also psychologically.

We are also engaged in developing active faith communities in our parishes. For example, we organise training for catechists in Cameroon, improve the mobility of Salvatorians in the Congolese savannah and invest in parish structures in neglected areas in India.
Support our project in Mozambique.
