In November, the first Piarists arrived in response to a call from the local church.

Sao Luiz Maria Grignon de Monfort’s parish serves 30 communities in various remote areas.
Testimony of a Piarist in Mozambique
- Lack of investment and cooperation. - Exploitation of natural resources - Health situation (COVID)

Through our Piarist presence, the population of the parish has welcomed more than 300 people fleeing violence.
Welcoming the affected people
