Let us learn and grow in friendship for good!THANK YOU for visiting our website.Take care and keep safe!Christina Yeo
Myanmar News Update #25
Dear Sisters, Volunteers and Friends of Canossian Myanmar Mission, We have already started our journey into 2021. Pope Francis in his New Year Message for the World Day of Prayer for Peace, reminded all of us of the importance & urgency of building " A Culture of Care as a Path to Peace. A culture of care as a way to combat the culture of indifference, waste and confrontation so prevalent in our time. " You have already been working with our Sisters & educators in Myanmar, putting into action A Culture of Care through your involvement in our Canossian Mission, giving us your support in so many ways. Even though scheduled mission trips had to be cancelled in 2020, due to Covid-19 Pandemic restrictions, our community in Myanmar and our volunteers & friends in Singapore have continued to keep in touch via whatsapp & email communications. Thank you for organizing online lessons, formation and rosary sessions and even a Christmas Party for our educators & children via ZOOM! This issue of Myanmar News Update highlights some of these events and shares with you how our Canossian community in Myanmar has continued to educate, serve and care for those who are in need. Thanking God for all his blessings, above all for keeping us safe, we wish all of you A Happy, Grace-filled New Year!
