On 23 June, Cabrini Ministries Swaziland celebrated the Feast of the Sacred Heart. In honor of this special day, our staff participated in various community service initiatives as a way of showing love in action even beyond the work we do on a daily basis. Each department selected a special project where they could serve community members in need as a way of working together and sharing our blessing with others.
The preschool staff, along with the preschool students, helped to make St. Phillips Mission clean by picking up over 10 bags of trash!
Other departments visited homesteads and helped clean, cook, fetch water and wash blankets. Tasks that the members of the homesteads struggle to do because of age or disability.
The education department visited a local preschool and spent the day teaching and playing with the students.
The day concluded with a beautiful mass and meal, as we celebrated together the Feast of the Sacred Heart.
While serving the community is at the very core of the work Cabrini Ministries does, being able to take a day to serve in more personal and focused ways was a great opportunity for all. We are blessed to be a blessing to others.
