Regnum Christi members and friends in Tapachula, Mexico, organized a few events to spread the missionary spirit even when certain activities normally found in missions could not take place due to the pandemic.

The Mission Youth, and Missionary Family groups at the Mano Amiga Tapachula School got together during the month of October in various events that promote support for missionaries around the world, and especially for the growth and formation of the town. (Mano Amiga schools are schools Regnum Christi runs in around the world for poor families, providing a Catholic education without cost.)

To achieve this, Masses, rosaries, and other prayers were offered, and the recitation of the rosary was promoted through social networks with a video broadcast to promote a message of hope, solidarity and unity.
