First we hear about the deliberations of the SMA Financial Council at a meeting in Lomé, Togo. Next comes a video report about a conference held on January 18 and 19 at the University of Kumasi to mark the 140th anniversary of the arrival of Fr. Auguste Moreau SMA pioneer of evangelization in Ghana. 

Each year on the 8th of February, the Church celebrates the life of St Bakhita and also designates this day as International Day of Prayer and Awareness against Human Trafficking. We hear about the life and example of St Bakhita and about how this occasion is a call to reject the scourge of Human Trafficking and to act against it in any way we can and wherever we are.

The last report this month is from Ireland, where recently Diamond Jubilee celebrations took place to mark the missionary priesthood of four SMA’s ordained in December 1962.

As usual the bulletin ends with a round-up of general news regarding activities and events across SMA International.
