Congo is known for its lively (lots of dancing and singing) liturgy. Here in Congo, prayer is better expressed by the whole human person, that is, in words and in actions. Thus, Vatican gave the Church of Congo the previliged of celebrating the liturgy with dancing, clapping and singing.

Please support the ministries and services of Divine Word Missionaries in Africa, most especially with your prayers.
