Hall Of Fame For World Mission

The annual awards ceremony took place at the University of Santo Tomas, in Quezon City, on October 13. The UST, the most ancient Asian university, is preparing to celebrate its 400th anniversary next year.  Fr. Miguel Llamazares, Delegate Superior of the Comboni Missionaries in Asia, and Fr. Dave Domingues, the dynamic promoter of the magazine, received the prize. World Mission expresses its gratitude to the Archdiocese of Manila, organizer and patron of the event, for the prize, and dedicates it to the magazine’s editorial staff, collaborators, subscribers, friends and readers.  On September 16, World Mission’s Editor, Fr. José Rebelo, was distinguished with the International Award for Excellence in Journalism by the Geneva-based International Catholic Union of the Press (UCIP), in a function-cum-dinner, during its triennial world congress in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso.  The historic congress, in which 48 nationalities of all five continents were represented, was officially opened by the President of Burkina Faso, Blaise Compaore. Among other participants were former President of Ghana Jerry John Rawlings; Papal representative Archbishop Claudio Maria Celli; President of the Episcopal Conference of Burkina-Niger, Archbishop Seraphin Rouamba; His Majesty Moogho Naba Baongho, Emperor of the Mossi people; Secretary General of UCIP, Joseph Calstas-Chittilappily; and the President of Union of the African Press (UCAP), Alexandre Le Grande Rouamba.
