La Nacion / Pastoral Social inaugurates its Pope Francis Dental Medical Center at the Metropolitan Seminary

The Archdiocesan Social Pastoral (PSA) inaugurated its medical and dental center on the grounds of the Metropolitan Seminary of Asuncion, named after Pope Francis. It aims to provide the highest quality, reliable and timely health services, ensuring adequate human care for the most vulnerable.

It will serve in a container offered by the brethren of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, located in Parque Seminario, now next to the social pharmacy, which also relies on pastoral care. People coming to this service will benefit from a completely free consultation and will have the possibility of accessing medication.
