Livingston Olivares; the Coordinator of the Commission, Marcelo Mejía, and other representatives of the same; as well as the President of the Ecuadorian Confederation of Catholic Education Establishments (Confedec), Rómulo López. During these meetings, a route was agreed that will begin in the Sierra region and then extend to the East and the Coast.

During the caravan, training will be provided to those responsible for the pastoral area of ​​the educational institutions, which includes rectors, religion teachers, nuns, and representatives of the Student Counseling Department.Topics will be addressed such as: “Eucharist: Source of fraternity in the school world”, “My personal encounter with Jesus in the Eucharist” and “Why did Pope Francis choose Quito as the venue for the 53rd International Eucharistic Congress?” so that they can transmit the message in their respective educational institutions.
