Our Railaco ‘ambassador’, Michael Musgrave, has just returned from Railaco, the first to visit there from St Canice’s in three years. Over the next month, he will share more stories of amazing changes underway since 18 others from our Parish visited Railaco in 2019.

Michael writes:
“Fr Hyoe Murayama SJ, Director of Nossef, welcomed me with the gathered student assembly. Fr Hyoe presented a special Certificate of Appreciation to St Canice’s parish to acknowledge the 18 years of our continuing support and friendship.

Across the way, the government clinic stands shuttered—no medicines for the people! Our continuing support is crucial.

Fr Bong still goes out in his 4WD to take medical clinic and pharmacy to the people in remote corners of the parish
