“Thanks a lot, God bless them”. This is the “thank you-phrase” used by every single student from the Holy Diocese of Katanga for your Fraternity when they received the allowance you so kindly offered for their studies. You are well aware of the fact that studying here in Congo is a very difficult and expensive thing to do. We, ourselves, taking into consideration the financial crisis which our beloved country is going through, are also aware of the difficulty of undertaking an “educational sponsorship” nowadays, as well as of the amount of love one should have in order to undertake such an action.
The Holy Diocese of Katanga expresses its sincere thanks to your Fraternity and asks you to convey wishes and thanks to the sponsors of these children.
We received the amount of € 14,000 for the school years 2011-2012 and 2012-2013. With this money, our students were able to pay the tuition fees for their enrollment, since here fees are paid at the beginning of the school year.
Please, remember us in your prayers to the Lord.
Monk Efthymios of Gregoriou
