EDITOR’S NOTE: Fr. Nick Harding, OMI is a missionary in Chincha, Peru. Fr. Nick often sends photos of the people and events which take place around his mission, I like to think of them as “Missionary Postcards.” Below are new photos from several recent events, the captions in quotations or italics are Fr. Nick’s own words.
“For our annual Christ the King feast the week prior we have food, dancing, and the contest for queen..we want the youth to have an opportunity to use their talents and gifts; preserve healthy traditions; build community. The queen contestants had to prepare answers about our Catholic faith…e.g. why is prayer important for you? what does Advent mean for you? etc.”
“Yesterday I went to a humble primary school (240 kids) in a poor part of the parish (recently “invaded” by migrants) for their anniversary and I did a paraliturgia. Happy, enthusiastic children. First photo “she ain’t heavy she’s my sister!” They have garden work for the children.”
