AN OUTLET FOR OUR LADIES’ CRAFTS


Two relatively new co-workers, Felicity and David Borland, have been doing wonders in regard to helping our ladies to market their beautiful handcrafts.  Felicity and David organized our first sale after Mass at Edenvale and it proved to be a great success. Then it was Maryvale, then other opportunities presented themselves and more are in the pipeline. This is an enormous help and provides encouragement to our ladies and we thank Felicity and David most sincerely.  See photos of the sale at the Edenvale Catholic Church.

OUR RECOLLECTION DAYS CONTINUE


Recollection days for our co-workers have proved to be very valuable and community building.  They are now in fact half days: 1.30 to 5.30 p.m. We thank Father Jeremias who has not only housed us at Comboni House, but who also has gone to great pains to make our recollections really beautiful and meaningful. The photos show some of our attendees.

Thanks to Innocentia, Thope and Blanche, we have continued to give our refugee children extra lessons on Saturday mornings. The photo above shows some of the scholars with the three teachers, whom we thank very much.

OUR FRIENDS AT ST RICHARDS


 
We extend our very warm gratitude to Father Paul, Father Andrew and the Mercy House Team at St Richards parish in the UK led by Mrs Judy McGregor, for raising funds for us once again. This parish has helped to keep us alive for around 18 years and we could never thank them enough. They held a mid-year luncheon for us, which has helped towards covering the costs of the extensive and very necessary renovations currently being done at Mercy House.  On Saturday, 27th September, one of our former residents who came to us with her family at the time of the genocide in Rwanda, visited the parish and was able to represent us in thanking everyone there personally for their help.  She was very warmly received
