A combination of the words "samba" and "banwaan", the title Sambanwá exemplifies the mission of the missalette: to guide the Clergy, Parish Ministries, Basic Ecclesial Communities, and the Lay Faithful in fully, actively, and consciously participating in Sunday Eucharistic Celebrations.
The missalette contains the presidential prayers, readings, and Prayer of the Faithful for the Sunday celebration, and a reflection to guide us for the week ahead.
Sambanwá is published by the Archdiocese of Caceres through the Caceres Commission on Communications and Commission on Liturgy.
