PAPAL ENVOY AT CENTENARY OF PREFECTURES OF PERUVIAN AMAZON
    LIMA, JAN 20 (ZENIT).- At the initiative of the Peruvian Episcopal Conference, on January 30, there will be a solemn celebration in the Cathedral of Lima of the first centenary of the establishment of apostolic prefectures in the Peruvian Amazon region.

    After the celebration in Lima, the commemoration will continue in the Amazon region itself. The Holy Father will send Archbishop Marcello Zago, Secretary of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples, as his special envoy. Archbishop Zago will be in Peru from January 29 until February 7.

    The evangelization of Peru began at the time of Pizarro's conquest of the Incas in 1532. Missionary activity was very intense, especially during the 16th and 17th centuries. Later, the establishment of the missionary prefectures gave decisive impetus to the work of spiritual and human development promoted by the Church. ZE00012009
