Building additions for St. Mary’s School and Orphanage
Through the continued support of our generous benefactors, St. Mary’s is able to continue its building program by adding second and third floors to several of the existing structures that serve our handicapped, deaf, poor and abandoned children. This will provide additional classrooms, bathrooms, sleeping quarters and dining areas to support more children.
We are truly grateful for our benefactors. Your continued love and kindness make this possible. Father Antony and the children pray for all of you daily and ask that you pray for all of us at St. Mary’s and Help the Helpless.
Final expansion of St. Mary’s
At this time, Father Antony is praying for guidance by the Holy Spirit regarding the next phase of St. Mary’s School and Orphanage: the establishment of a nurses’ college and hospital here on campus. Such training would open an additional avenue of education for some of our handicapped and poor children and provide needed nursing professionals to India and other countries. The elderly in the surrounding villages would also benefit, receiving quality medical treatment at the hospital from our nurses in training. We are also considering opening up the nurses’ college to a limited number of outside students for a fee to create additional financial support for St. Mary’s and relieve some of the burden from our generous benefactors.
This is a huge undertaking and the feasibility study is still in progress. The financial obstacles are numerous, so your prayers for guidance in this project will be most appreciated.
