We had an assembly in which they were to mix and mingle looking for people they didn’t know to introduce themselves to. There are many new faces from all over South Sudan. All of the classes have gained new members because of those coming from the teacher training college in Malakal which hasn’t reopened because of the destruction and now insecurity. There are one or two pictures where the old ones saw class mates for the first time. That would be a happy reunion!
Other pictures are from the opening Mass. The songs were planned and sung by different groups so we had some of the many languages of STTC represented. It was nice to hear them sing in their own language. Most songs have a lot of repetition so people were joining in even when it wasn’t their language. We have had a good start and pray it continues.
All best wishes for a good week and a happy St. Patrick’s Day for those who become Irish on March 17!
