In Sunday the 29th of May the parish celebrated the coming end of the month together, beginning with a very prayerful Marial liturgy with a rosary as a focus. As each Hail Mary passed a member of the congregation placed a votive candle on the floor and at the end we had crafted a form of the Rosary on the floor of the church.
After the liturgy there were games and prizes and, of course, food! This was prepared by Br Francis and his helpers. The day was wonderfully planned and co-ordinated by Sister Mercy, Brother Francis and the youth of the Parish, especially our young Heng.
Next we have a “future choices” Seminar for the young people of Pailin. This is to assist them to make the choices that confront them as they finish their high school years. A group from the Royal University of Phnom Penh are coming to run the seminar this is an action of the Brothers Community coordinated by Francis.
For Champagnat day we are inviting those young men in particular who are close to us and showing an interest in our way of life to pray with us and celebrate the life of our Founder.
