A busy week…..
This week it was a very busy one! Sunday morning we reach the end of the catechesis year, and hundreds of adults, youth and children receive the oil of catechumens, which marks the entry in the year of preparation for Baptism.
Also on Sunday the "Legion de Marie", a catholic movement of the Parish, the most numerous and lively, celebrates the promises of some new members. And with them, and other people of the parish, on Tuesday May 31st we climb the Bozoum hill, on top of which there is a statue of the Virgin Mary. Here we conclude the marian month of May, and asking the Madonna for a blessing on the city of Bozoum and the Country.
On Thursday we organize a “open house" for our school "Isidore Bakanjia": here, last September with the SIRIRI NGOs of Prague, we have begun an educational experiment among the first elementary classes, with a very participatory and joyful approach (the project It is titled "learn while having fun") and with the introduction of the national language, Sango. Some directors of Catholic and Public schools (from Ndim, Bocaranga, Bossemptele and Baoro) spend time in the morning in the classroom, and in the afternoon they met discussing and analyzing the new system. They were all amazed because pupils are very cute, know how to write and read, and in a surprising calm behavior.
During this week the works at the construction site for the extension of our church are progressing well. Monday and Tuesday it's time to demolish the sacristy. Wednesday comes the great Mario Mazzali, and in two days we can assemble and lift off the ground two large beams (9 meters and 300 kg each).This is a big step forward!
