Remexio Timor Leste Called
Catherine an ex teacher & Heather also from Sacred Heart answered the call. We checked out the new playground in the kindergarten & painted each day motivating the builder to complete the task. We signed 3 year 10 students for their next 2 years of schooling with scholarships as their parents can’t afford for these excellent students to go to school. We signed 2 students for university in 2024 - nursing. I hope that Bayside Catholic Mission parishioners will support these students to achieve their dreams to better their community. Housing is improving with young people on work visas in Australia sending money home. We were well looked after by old friends, the housekeepers feeding us well and being welcomed by 2 new exceptional priests dedicated to Pope Francis & Laudate Si. - Heather McGrath
