Arsenio (Dodong) Redulla, a Diocesan priest from the Diocese of Iligan, volunteered to work with the Columbans for three years. He was appointed to Chile. Subsequently, he decided to stay on for another three years. Here shares a little of his Chilean odyssey.
Off to Chile
From 1983 to 1989 I work as a volunteer missionary priest with the Columban Fathers in the Diocese of Iquique, Chile, South America.
Iquique is a port city in the north Chile; it is about 2000 kilometers from the city Santiago, the capital of Chile. The Diocese of Iquique comprises the parishes within the city itself and the villages on the pre- Cordillera of Los Andes. Cordillera refers to the mountain ranges. There are around 60 villages which belong to the Diocese. The population varies; five to 50 families may live in the village.
