Thanksgiving greetings

Nov. 26, 2009

Father Michael Barton sent this collage from St. Teresa Parish.

The collage is a composite of photos taken during the 75th anniversary celebration of the parish and the trip to open the school and chapel in Marial Baai, all in October.

I wanted to let you know that I have received a huge donation from Dubai which will allow the start of the church in Gok Macar before the end of the year.

We had a visit of the Superior General of the Daughters of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart who came to Sudan to visit her sisters in Mapuordit and here in Nyamlell but she missed a plane and so was here for only two days. We killed a bull and had a school Mass and did a play and had dance and song to welcome her.

I am inviting the teachers and sisters and catechists and parish workers for Thanksgiving tomorrow and then to watch HOOK as a thanksgiving for their work and cooperation. We'll have beef and a simple meal and prayer.
