A Safe Haven

Fr Gary Walker at Holy Family Home, Bacolod City

My Columban colleague Fr Gary Walker, editor of The Far East, the Columban magazine for Australia and New Zealand wrote an article about Holy Family Home, Bacolod City, A Safe Haven, after visiting there last year. You can read it here in the August issue of The Far East.

We have Father Gary's article as our featured video at the moment on Misyon.

In July-August 2008 we had another article about Holy Family Home, 'A Child Redeemed is a Generation Saved' by Richelle Verdeprado, whom the Capuchin Tertiary Sisters of the Holy Family have enabled to study at third level. Richelle is now in her third year of a four-year course in Social Work at the University of Negros Occidental - Recoletos (UNO-R), run by the Augustinian Recollects, known in the Philippines as the Recoletos. She has been involved in campus journalism since her elementary days and works in our office during vacations.
