Monday and Tuesday, January 13 and 14, 2020, Fr. Jerome Paluku, General Secretary for the Missionary Cooperation of our Order visited the San Sebastian site of the “Obra Máxima.” The objective of his visit was to congratulate and, above all, to encourage the animators of this Carmelite, non-government organization which is deeply involved in the promotion and financing of the developmental works of many of our missions in various countries of the world.
Fr. Jon Korta, General Administrator of “Obra Máxima,” presented to Fr. Jerome the work that he and his team carry out daily: analysis and management of projects, assistance for the needs of the missionaries, and direction of aid to areas of need, etc. In this way, the NGO continues the tradition of providing help to the missions of the Discalced Carmelites of the Navarra Province, who merit our recognition and admiration.
Very good channels of collaboration and communication exist between the Secretary of Missionary Cooperation and the «Obra Máxima.» Both wanted their visit to reinforce this relationship.
As a reminder, the «Obra Máxima» is the principal organ of the Carmelites of Navarra devoted to the development and evangelization of the towns. It has a history of more than 85 years of service to the neediest, helping many projects in poor and vulnerable communities, thereby sustaining missionary actions, promoting vocations, and helping young people in formation within the Order.
