humble service

Tue, 21 Nov 23 Communities Solidarity

The community of the Mother of Compassion in the diocese of Rayagada, in the state of Odisha, India, we are committed to taking care of children, both young and old, who attend government schools, where their studies are not carried out adequately, for which they need support. They come from a Christian community that is 1 kilometer away from our house.
From Monday to Friday we Sisters help them to study the topics of their regular subjects and we also dedicate some time to catechesis in particular teaching them prayers. We also offer our humble service in 2 villages - Kothapeta and Kolliguda - dedicating ourselves. In addition to education, visit to families, meetings with young people, the sick and the elderly. With them we participate the celebratory moments, especially the Eucharist and village festivals. We thus grow together as a Church, grateful to the Lord who allows us to be at his service, learning so much from our people.
