Mechi Tarragona - Uruguay

Uruguayan culture is dominated by secular worldviews and the Diocese of Uruguay is particularly vulnerable, making innovative mission and linking diocesan communities together crucial.

I am joining in the mission of the diocese by equipping and encouraging local churches as they step out in their communities, seeking to discern and meet local needs, building friendships and sharing Jesus’ love with people.

In addition to coming alongside churches, I am training facilitators for the Mothers’ Union parenting course in the Anglican Province of South America.


To communicate and demonstrate the love of the Father to people in the Diocese of Uruguay


To come alongside and train groups in local communities, especially families and leaders

More about Mechi Tarragona

In my youth, I trained as a nun and worked with groups of young people and as a teacher.

Then, working more with families, I continued my development work in shanty towns in the south of Buenos Aires. When I joined the Anglican Communion in 2001, I was developing various programmes, contributing, among other things, my training in counselling and personal development.

As part of a missionary link with the Diocese of the North of Argentina where we served in the Wichí, Toba and Chorote communities, I trained as a facilitator and then as a coach in connection with the Mothers’ Union Parent Course programme.

In this last decade I worked intensely as a counsellor until September of 2018, when I again heard, together with my husband, Jesus' invitation to follow him, in another way and to new horizons, beyond the borders of our country, this time to Uruguay.

Being part of CMS means being part of a family, where I know that I am supported, loved and not isolated. CMS makes it possible to do mission in the community from a broader perspective.
