Compass Rose visit to Brazil – first day

On the first day of the Compass Rose Society visit to Brazil, members went to Araras, a district of Petrópolis, Rio de Janeiro State. There, they visited the Anglican School, St. Michael and All Angels’ Mission and other projects coordinated by Anglican Social Action Rio de Janeiro.

After that, the group visited areas that were affected by floods and mudslides. Many of the visitors, who represented sister churches of the Anglican Communion, witnessed a bit of the devastation that took place in the mountainous Rio de Janeiro countryside.
