Not an ordinary Sunday

Today in the Catholic liturgical calendar is the Twenty First Sunday in Ordinary Time but at Andiamo Youth Cooperative Trust (AYCT), this day was a special Sunday for many reasons.

Firstly, Andiamo Education Institutions (AEI) received a bell from Italy through volunteers from Italy.

Secondly, it is Alessandro Marchetti’s feast day. Alessandro is the Coordinator of AEI.

Thirdly, it is the last Sunday for some volunteers from Italy to be in Malawi as they are leaving for Italy soon.

During the mass, that Fr. Mario Pacifici concelebrated with Don Cesare, the main celebrant Fr Mario thanked the family of Luigi and Bruna for bringing the bell all the way from Italy. He stressed the importance of the bell to the AEI campus.

“Keeping time in a community like ours is of greatest importance,” said Fr Mario who also thanked some students who graced the occasion for being present in the campus when during this time of holidays.

Fr. Mario Pacifici stressed to the students that discipline begins when we respect time.

On his turn, Alessandro Marchetti thanked the congregation for wishing him a happy feast day.
