Prayer filled greetings to you on this special year of Jubilee for PNG and the Year of Saint Joseph- the Patron Saint of the Lasallian Family. I hope this newsletter reaches you in good health.
As you return to schools and work after the 4 weeks shut down, and as we start Term 2, I pray for God's blessings on each of you. May God keep you and your students safe, may He be your counsel during difficult moments and may He be your strength and inspiration as you continue with faith and zeal in doing God's work in the classroom, office and at home.
"Do not abandon yourselves to despair", says Saint John Paul II, "we are Easter people and halleluiah is our song". With that I welcome you all to another edition, the first for 2021- the year of the Diamond Jubilee 75 Years of the De La Salle Brothers' In PNG.
It was 75 years ago when Brothers Patrick Howard, Celsius McGuire, Lucian Thorpe and Anthony Broderick arrived at Bomana having travelled from Australia. As lay partners of the De La Salle Brother, who now share in the "PNG Story", we are thankful to these pioneer Brothers and the many others who came and served in PNG. As we join with the Brothers, the Alumni and friends and family in celebrating this diamond jubilee, lest we forget those who have passed on from this life and are now with God in heaven. God bless them all.
