On July 31, 2023, the Parish Priest, along with a few representatives from the Parish, went to the Government school in the vicinity to celebrate the feast of St. Ignatius. After honouring the portrait of St. Ignatius, we shared a few words about this fascinating soldier saint with the students and staff. After the celebration, more than a hundred stationery kits were distributed to the children, in line with what Malala Yousafzai once said, “One child, one teacher, one book, one pen can change the world.” This statement also resonates with the Ignatian value of “reaching out to the needy.”
The joyful faces of the children made us see God powerfully present in them. The Parish Priest expressed his gratitude towards the parishioners who sponsored the stationery kits.
