The Christmas party this year was held at the brothers’ Corpus Christi Monastery with traditional costumes, performances and dancing. The brothers wanted to make it a special time for the 400+ local children who attended, so the children came in their best clothes. Fortunately, this year the Christmas party was generously sponsored by Tracey Soutar and her husband from Port Pirie, South Australia, who attended the Christmas party; and Café delAmore in Booval, Queensland who fund raise for Missionaries of the Poor. In addition, the children received a Christmas gift parcel each. The party was certainly a memorable event and we thank the brothers and sponsors for making it such a special day for the children of Labuan Bajo.
We sign off for now but next post we will catch up on the Christmas party in Saburai in Timor Leste.
See you then…!!!!
With every blessing
