While in Zambia last May (before I knew of my illness) I invited one of the sisters to visit the parish here: Sr Juunza who manages the Monze hospital. She was due for a sabbatical and the Congregation have arranged her to take this in Italy and then to stay here in Penrith. I am delighted she can do this though the logistics have become more complicated! I would like to meet next Sunday (21 January) after 10.30 Mass with all who support the hospital to review how we support this venture and Sr Juunza’s visit.
** We have just heard that there is a cholera epidemic in the Monze area, 70 people have died and all schools are closed - please remember the sisters and the parish in your prayers. **
