A Brief History of the Brazil Mission

A Brief History of the Brazil Mission

In 1964, Bishop Francis J. Klein, in response to an appeal of Pope Paul VI and a specific request from the archbishop of Maceió, agreed to establish a diocesan mission in that archdiocese in northeastern Brazil. Bishop Klein effectively tithed from his supply of priests, sending three to Brazil, along with two nurses. They were assigned to staff a large rural parish of 70,000 to 80,000 people in União dos Palmares. The original team consisted of Frs.
