St Joseph's School Centenary

SCHOOL STATIONS OF THE CROSS
For a few years now school terms are calculated on the number of weeks from the start of the year. It means that this year the holidays and Holy Week do not line up as they often do. The practicality of that is that both schools are praying the Stations of the Cross on this Friday 31st March. You are most welcome to attend and join in as always. St Joseph's School is at 10am, and Christ the King School begins at 2pm. Both are prayerful celebrations that will help you be attentive along the way to Holy Week.

YOUTH GROUP FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS
Friday 31st March at St Joseph's Hall, 6.30pm to 8.30pm. Dinner included! All high school aged youth most welcome. Contact 3379 1534 or pv.corindagraceville@bne.catholic.net.au Last Youth Group for Term 1.

CARITAS
CaritasNguyet's Story - Vietnam ~ Love Your Neighbour Nguyet lives with a severe disability, and has suffered isolation in her native Vietnam as a result. A Caritas-supported program offered her education, creative outlets and much-needed interaction. In a small town in Vietnam, a severe disability kept young Nguyet behind closed doors. Constrained by the high demands of her condition, her parents were also isolated from their neighbours. There is a high level of disability in Vietnam, particularly as a legacy of war, but little support for families whose children have disabilities. People with disability have poorer health outcomes, lower educational achievements, lower economic participation and higher rates of poverty. The future seemed bleak for the whole family, until Nguyet's family became participants in a program supported by Caritas Australia. "Capacity Building for Parent Associations Supporting Children with Disabilities" program has given them support on several levels. A neighbour, and teacher, has been able to offer Nguyet home-based education, and there is capacity building for her parents and others in the same situation, through the local Parents' Association. Nguyet's mother has been able to increase her skills, and share her experiences with other parents of children with disabilities. Nguyet has learnt to read and write and better manage her physical needs, and her creative gifts have been unlocked. Now she is increasingly engaging with her neighbours, and she and her parents are more confident about her future.
