Sharing the Gift of Hope

2013 Christmas Message


Dear Friends

As Christmas rapidly approaches we turn our minds to the birth of the Jesus, which gives so much hope to the world. And hope is also that gift that our friends, supporters and donors have given to so many young people across Samoa this year.

2013 Christmas - Three KingsThe school year at Don Bosco Salelologa and Don Bosco Alafua have concluded with many students achieving things that they never believed possible whether that be outstanding achievement, extraordinary involvement school life or simply finishing the year. The parishes of Salelologa, Leauvaa and Sinamoga / Moamoa are deep into their Christmas preparations with carol festivals of varying lengths be held in each parish, with many young people enthusiastically involved. Our schools and parishes offer hope to many young people who often have so little to look forward to.

Without the support of our friends and donors we would not be able to provide so many young people with education, trades training, spiritual formation, cultural activities and sporting festivals and youth gatherings. Without your help we would not be able to share the gift of hope.

Thankyou for your prayers and support this year, thankyou for your generous donations and thankyou for sharing the gift of hope with others.

May the blessings of the Christ-child be with you and may His light shine upon you and your family this Christmas and the New Year.
