• Esther Fong ICPE Mission


The Institute for World Evangelisation (ICPE Mission) was founded
in Malta by a couple, Mario and Anna Cappello in 1985 as a response
to the late Pope John Paul II’s call for a new evangelisation.
This journey began in 1978 when Mario Cappello felt the Lord’s call
to gather Catholics together as a community to evangelise. This call
was shared with the Catholic Charismatic Renewal of Malta in
October 1979. Following the first Evangelisation Course organized by
the Renewal and led by Mario, a group of people came together to
form a community on 8th December 1979. The community began to
meet in different homes for praise and worship, formation and
evangelistic outreaches and was soon growing in numbers. Over
time, the particular call of the community to Worship and
Evangelisation became clear even as the Lord was pointing it to the
international dimension it would have.
