Fundación MIR announced its 29th ‘Retiro Carismatico’ 2019, which in English means “Charismatic Retreat” and will take place on Saturday, October 19th starting at 8:00 a.m. at the Politecnico Fundación MIR, located on the Km #2 of the La Romana-Higueral highway.
This event has been celebrated every year since 1990, organized by Lian Fanjul de Azqueta and Lyanne Azqueta, President and Founder and Executive Director of the Fundación MIR respectively. Mrs. Lian Fanjul De Azqueta has close to her heart that only that our children and young people receive quality education but she also believes that, given the different social and cultural contexts with which they must deal with daily, believing in God is a way to instill hope, so with the retreat she along with Fundación MIR promote the word of God and a fraternal encounter among Christians.
Every year the retreat has a different theme with the aim to open the hearts of the people, embrace religion and impart and share biblical knowledge. This year it’s “El espíritu de Dios está sobre mí y me ha ungido,” which translates to “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, for he has anointed me” The retreat is open to everyone; children, teenagers and adults, and is of course, free!
This beautiful event will have the participation of Mons. Ramon E. Albino Guzman of the Diocese of Mayaguez, Puerto Rico; Father Julian Rosario Basora, Dr. Yaritza Echevarría Villarrubia, Mr. Miguel Calzado along with the Ministerio de Música Caná, as well as members of the Community Siervos de Cristo coming from Santo Domingo who are devoted to teaching the word of God. The following is the complete schedule of the event, and for more information, you can contact the Fundación MIR offices at 809-523-8270.
