Comboni Lay Missionaries

African Memory Project: Fr. Ismael Piñón

Padre Ismael

We continue this series of testimonies with Fr. Ismael and his missionary experience in Chad.

Fr. Ismael Piñón, as a Comboni Missionary, shares with us his time of missionary service in Chad for eight years. There he was in charge of the formation of a parish that would be the backbone of such important social projects as the construction of schools in villages without access to education.

Retreat and celebration of the patronal feast of St. Daniel Comboni in the parish by the CLM of Sarh (Chad).


Good morning everyone, we, CLM of Chad, prepared and celebrated the October 10 Solemnity of our Patron Saint Daniel Comboni as follows:

We started the day of October 8 with a retreat, followed by adoration of the Blessed Sacrament with the whole Comboni family in the parish.

The retreat continued all day on 9 October at the spiritual center of “Les Roniers”.

On 10 October Mass was celebrated in different parishes with the participation of 4 CLM.

In the evening we had a fraternal meal with the whole Comboni family, including the young Comboni postulants and novices.

It was a beautiful celebration; we leave here some photos.
