Thank you from Ichama

Dear Sr. Rosemarie,

Sr. Calista and Sr. Helen, Little Angels School

Sr. Calista and Sr. Helen, Little Angels School

Thank you so much to the children of Holy Name School.  May God continue to bless them and crown with success their every good effort.  And thank you for your efforts, Sister, especially for the efforts you are making to raise money for the less privileged in our school.

The children of Little Angels School are very grateful. They are now preparing for their final examination which will qualify them to be promoted to the next class if they pass. Schools here in Benue State will be going on vacation on 18th July.

I thank God for the life of Mrs. Mitchell and for her happy retirement.  I pray God will continue to bless her and always meet her at the point of her needs. I will write to her later.

Since we started this term, I have used part of the money you sent to buy uniform wears for about 20 of them. Sister, you need to see some of these children and what they wear to school –  something that is not good to wear or even to stay at home, they wear it to school.  We have 3 uniform wear options and out of this 3, some don’t have even one that is presentable.  It pains me so much when I see them.   I will pay the school fees of about 20 children this term with the same money.   What I need now is resources to enable me to fully take care of the uniforms, books and fees of the children here that so much need help.

Thank you once again, Sister. If not for you, I know that a good number of the children in our school now would have had the opportunity to be here

Love to our Sisters.  And to all.

Sr. Calista

Holy Name School 1st Grade Missionaries

First grade students at Holy Name Catholic School in Birmingham, MI, raised more than $400 for Little Angels School in Ichama, Nigeria.

00 Holy Name 1st Graders

First grade teacher Mrs. Zanda Mitchell prepared our future mission-conscious Christians by leading her first graders in a cookie & bake sale to help children at Little Angels School, where 3 HVM sisters serve as director and teachers.   Tuition at Little Angels School is $10.00 per year but even this small amount is too much for some local families in Ichama.  The money raised by the first graders at Holy Name are enough to pay tuition for 40 children.

How have you helped our children experience the joy of sharing and merciful giving?  You can help support the same efforts as these “small” missionaries at Holy Name School.   Go to the Contact Us/Donate  page on this website and click on the “Donate” button there.  A single $10 donation is enough for a full year’s tuition.
