St Thomas Aquinas Sunday School Donates to Queen of Peace Catholic Church – Nadowli
Sunday School Children of the St Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church Legon Campus today donated items worth over GH₵10,000 to underprivileged children at the Queen of Peace Catholic Church – Nadowli Parish. The items included cash, sandals, clothes, shoes, rosaries, books, candles, bibles, matches, drinks, biscuits, storage bottles etc
This donation comes on the back of an appeal by Mrs. Getrude Songsore, a parishioner at the St Aquinas Catholic church and equally a Sunday School facilitator to extend support to the needy Sunday School children in the Queen of Peace Parish. Sunday School facilitators at the St Aquinas parish have been doing tremendously well with their many outreach programs to deprived children living true the Catholic faith.
Mrs. Getrude Songsore presenting the items entreated the children to cultivate the habit of giving, she said it is only by giving that we are able to receive more from Christ. God cherishes faithful givers and no one has ever become poor by giving. She encouraged children to be respectful, obedient and religious by staying in the Catholic Church. She was quick to add that funding for the items donated were sacrifices from children like them in the St Thomas Aquinas Parish Sunday School, some contributed in their widow’s mite by refusing to buy sweets or candies just to contribute to this worthy cause. She also mentioned that this donation was successful because of the generosity of parents and philanthropy of community members of the St Aquinas Church.
The Parish Priest and the Sunday School coordinator received the items thanked the Sunday School community of St Thomas Aquinas for their generosity to the Queen of Peace Nadowli Parish. He underscored the fact that the items donated would go a long way in bettering the life’s of needy beneficiaries. He promised to continuously remember the Sunday School Community in prayers.
Mrs. Getrude Songsore equally saw to it that pen pal letters from the St Aquinas Catholic Church Sunday School community was distributed among the Nadowli Queen of Peace Sunday School community and entreated them to reciprocate this gesture by writing back as this contributes to enriching their writing skills.
The event ended with a vote of thanks, singing, dancing and prayers to the glory of the Sunday School community of the St Aquinas Catholic Church community.
