It was with great joy that we received in Paphos seven of our brother priests from the Institute of the Incarnate Word for our 2017 Easter celebrations, known as Pascuetas. These religious came from as far as Egypt and Tunisia and also from missions within our province in places such as Israel and even our mission in Aleppo, Syria!
As some of them were visiting Cyprus for the first time, we felt it our job to make their trip a memorable experience. The short (therefore intense) tour included visits to archaeological sites, the Troodos Mountains, some monasteries and churches including St. Lazarus in Larnaca and of course, our church of Agia Kyriaki, where we celebrated Holy Mass and were able to introduce our missionaries to the parishioners.
We keep praying for our IVE religious family and for the fruits of our missions. God bless Cyprus and God bless the IVE.
Fr. Fernando Flores, IVE
