Beginning of apostolic work in Latvia
Since last summer, faithful of Opus Dei—priests and laity—of various nationalities have been living in Riga, the capital of Latvia, having moved there to begin stable apostolic work of the Prelature in that country. The first center of Opus Dei in Riga is on Elizabetes iela street, in a residential section of the city. The faithful of Opus Dei who have moved to Riga exercise various professions. In Riga they have organized classes of Christian formation and, for the younger people, language courses and sports activities.
