Father Karlian Medeiros Ovídio Vale, a missionary of the Shalom Life Community, incardinated in the Archdiocese of Fortaleza where he was ordained in 2010, was nominated to collaborate in the Pontifical Commission for Latin America. Members of the Holy See are dedicated to studying the main questions of Catholic life in Latin America. For 10 years, he worked in the general government headquarters of the Shalom Community, at the general office in Aquiraz, Brazil, as as the head of the Shalom’s Misisonary Advisory which has missionaries in over 200 dioceses.
Father Karlian will move to one of the Shalom Community houses in Rome. Upon his appointment, Fr. Karlian said:
“I ask that you pray for my new mission, while I keep you all in my prayers and communion in Christ, and in the Charism which is given to us by God.”
The Community has been serving the Holy See since 2013, in the Family, Laity and Life Dicastery, where Father John Wilkes, also from the Life Community is the one responsible for the youth sector.
