Celebrating Our 25th Birthday

On Friday 9th August we celebrated our 25th birthday in a very beautiful and meaningful celebration. It began with  Holy Mass celebrated by our Comboni Father Jude. After that several refugees related their stories as to how they got to Mercy House and how their lives had changed since then – as one refugee put it: his life “turned downside up!” These were very powerful messages. After this Father Jude released some helium-filled balloons which rose up into the sky as a sign of the blessing we would always like Mercy House to be. Then there were refreshments, and a lucky dip, followed by lunch. It was just another of those really joyful Mercy House celebrations.
