St. Patrick’s Junior Secondary School

Upon return from the  2019 delegation trip in March, a few delegates, lead by Jill Schafer, sent supplies to the 20 students from Sowetho (formerly called Itipini) who are now boarding and attending school at St. Patrick’s Junior Secondary School outside Mthatha (Umtata), South Africa. 


 Included in the parcels to the students were pajamas, art and writing supplies.  To personalize the package, each child received a note with their name expressing how special they are and that the delegation is praying for them.

A special thanks to Jill Schafer, Wayne Schafer, Carol Brozic, Mary Caskey, Kathleen Hyser, Sherry Ehlen, Amy McGovern, and Joan Revels for this compassionate project.
