This Sunday at the monthly school Mass there was an unveiling of a plaque from the Parish in Peru in recognition of all the support given by our Parish over the years.
Since 2000, we as a Parish have raised £117,000! Last year Fr Alex made an appeal and the Parish came together and raised an astonishing £14,000. These funds went towards 1 community room which is earthquake proof.
Fr Alex's new vast area is in need of at least four community rooms as there is currently nowhere for the people to gather.
The plaque reads:
With gratitude and appreciation to
Rev. Fr. Patrick Zammit
and the St Vincent's Parish community of Dartford, Kent, U.K, for their constant efforts and generous support to the people of St Helen's Parish in Alto Cayma, Arequipa, Peru.
United in one mission of building Peace on Earth through Faith and Service.
