Cantors, also called pastoral associates, are the religious leaders of their communities who lead the people in prayer. With training, they can also become catechists in their local parishes. Mission Mexico has funded several workshops each year to provide the necessary training for 70-80 cantors on topics such as Baptism, alcoholism, Confirmation, Eucharist, cultivation of the land and federal elections. Three Combonian priests and three Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul organize and lead the workshops.
