A REFLECTION ON THE HODOVO VISIT 2010

Written by Eileen Cywinski on .

HodovoI have been associated with St. Clare’s Parish for over 20 years as a parishioner, catechist and teacher.

 

When Father Loughran first told the parish about the Hodovo Project I felt drawn into the situation. As a parent, a teacher and as a parishioner I was interested and eager to learn more. I really wanted to help and was prepared to do what I could. I could see the children on the photographs were children in need. These children are still in need!

HodovoFr Loughran presented the idea of a new project to the parish during each mass on Sunday 22nd November. Hodovo is a Refugee Settlement in Bosnia Herzegovina that suffered greatly during the Yugoslavian civil war in the 1990's. Having visited this community previously, Fr Loughran has seen the challenges that these people face on a daily basis and invited the parish to consider forming a group to consider how we develop a future project in support of Hodovo. Parishoners are invited to attend an initial meeting on Monday 30th November at 7-30pm.
