For the last twenty years our Parish has had a link with the Parish of Kasanka in a remote and impoverished part of Zambia and Franciscan Missionaries of the Divine Motherhood working there. To mark this special anniversary we have been invited to contribute towards the building of a community and school hall. This hall would support a wide range of school events, basic adult education and community activities. There are marked envelopes available at all our churches which can be placed in any of the collection baskets.
The FMDM Sisters’ mission in Kasanka aims to support and empower the local community, particularly the local women, through imparting health and nutrition advice, raising local literacy levels, and teaching skills to help reduce vulnerability and increase incomes within the households of Kasanka. In this way, the school and community hall will become a focal point to bring the Parish community together, and to improve its welfare, through sustainable development.
