This past Saturday afternoon, the CARITAS students who attend St. Peter Secondary School met at the Nkokonjeru Parish to help clean up the church and the grounds. Tasks included scrubbing the church floors, weeding along the church steps and weeding, raking and hoeing the parish yard. The activities occurred just in time to spruce up the parish for the Feast of Corpus Christi on Sunday, June 7th.
Frank, a seminarian whose education is sponsored through CARITAS, organized most of the event, encouraging the students to act responsibly and give back to the community. He prepared a light lunch of rice and cabbage for the students and assigned them to various tasks. I had the pleasure of photographing it all and helping out where I could.
The sponsors who support these teens through CARITAS' Child Sponsorship Programs can be very proud of them! When one chooses to sponsor a child, good works can grow exponentially.
