Description:
In 1977, during a meeting with young people, Fr Jonas Abib SDB made an appeal to those present: “Who would like to give a year of their lives to God?”. Surprisingly, many said yes. On 2 February 1978, 12 young people began to live in community, in Lorena (SP, Brazil). The Canção Nova Community came from this. it has full time and part time membership, the latter being part of their normal family, professional and social life but lived with missionary intent.
One of the clear motivations for the group has been the Apostolic Exhortation by Paul VI, Evangelii Nuntiandi

 

Context (examples of use):

 

Other notes:
To carry out its mission, from the beginning of the 1980s Canção Nova began to align itself with various other institutions. The John Paul II Foundation was created as a non-profit and major partner of Canção Nova.
This Foundation is maintained by associates, collaborators, who voluntarily contribute to the institute for the CN mission. In 1980 the JPII Foundation acquired its first radio broadcasting station. in 1989, the first TV transmission. This led to the setting up of the Canção Nova Communication System, made up of radio, TV, internet, a magazine, WebTV and Mobile.
The group was accepted into the Salesian Family in 2009

Term type ('EntryTerm' if no other applies)
(1) (2)   
[Initialisms like AGC are regarded as acronyms; a term like 'Bro.' is an abbreviation; an example of short form instead would be the main part of a very long book title (most of DB's book titles! 'Giovane Provveduto' is a short form). A loan term is not translated whereas a calque is. A blend is where two (or more) morphemes or 'word' parts have been combined to form a single term, as in the case of 'austraLasia'. Choose variant when there exists at least one other common form of the term. ]

[Archaic refers to terms that have fallen out of regular use. Deprecated indicates official disapproval or if not disapproval, official abandonment at least. A neologism is a term that has come into play relatively recently - say, since Vatican II, but the time frame can be flexible.]
