St. Vincent de Paul Parish in Blantyre, Malawi, Africa
Our new friends are building their new parish hall brick by brick. So far parishioners of the church and nine outstation churches have made over 200,000 bricks by hand!
Some of the youth from St. Vincent de Paul parish in Blantyre, Malawi send greetings to their counterparts at St. Dominic in Kingsport.
Fr. Michael and Deacon Frank visited the Dream Center and the St. John Paul II Children Nutrition Center, two centers run by the Community of Sant'Egidio in Blantyre. The Dream Center provides medicines and support to pregnant mothers with HIV/AIDS. They are currently serving around 5,000 people and have achieved over a 99% non-transference rate of the disease from mother to child! At the St. JP II Center over 600 children are fed daily! Both centers' services are free with no charge.
