A message from Helen Clark…..
Dear Congregation of St Alphonse,
Firstly a huge thank you for your generosity at the outdoor Mass and BBQ last Sunday.
We raised 700 Euros for “ The Ilula Orphan Program”
We must say a HUGE thank you to our very talented Children and young people who sang and played to help raise that money for vulnerable Children and young people in Tanzania . I truly believe it is down to them that we could raise such a great amount in just an hour and a half.
Please see below a poster for an Alizeti concert this Sunday evening, 7th July.
At that concert Alizeti will present a cheque to IOP Luxembourg for 16,000.00 Euros.
IOP Luxembourg are a registered NGO in Luxembourg and in partnership with Christian Solidarity International ( CSI) received co financing form the Luxembourgish Government to build a Primary school in Ilula.
In January 2018 Sam O”Dea, one of the directors of Sunflower Montessori in Luxembourg raised the Luxembourgish flag outside the Primary School in Ilula when the first students entered.
The school will host 560 students on completion in Jan 2020.
The Orphanage and hostels will be home to the some of the most vulnerable children in the area.
This amazing feat has only come to fruition because of the generosity of the Luxembourgish people.
Over the years our parish has made a substantial contribution to that amount and I cannot thank you enough.
It would be wonderful if some of you could come to support us and celebrate on Sunday.
From Alizeti, IOP Luxembourg, IOP Tanzania and all the children in Ilula who will benefit from your generousity.
A VERY BIG THANK YOU,
Please look at www.ioptanzania.org
Hope you can make it!
