In that industrious, productive, patient and simple communion forged in the love of Jesus Christ, we pray for each other for the grace to faithfully and constantly live ever more profoundly the words of our holy founder Saint Vincent Pallotti: “Let our life always be at the foot of the cross of Our Lord Jesus Christ, and in Jesus Christ we will always find true joy. May the Grace, the Charity, the Peace, and the Mercy of Our Lord Jesus Christ be always in us and in all”. (Letter of 04.04.1849, to the Sisters of San Silvestro in Capite)

“Actions are the true proof of love. The true proof of love is the performing of deeds.”

As it is so unjustly the case, what many take for granted are the dreams of others. Such is the story of the Mother of Divine Love Kindergarten, opened by the Congregation of the Sisters of the Catholic Apostolate.
Located in Inharrime, its opening meets the humble appeals of the families that live there, who have hoped for a school and safe place to place their children during the day. In 2004, the response was first simple; a room in the Sisters’ house of formation.
But in 2012, they took a significant step and began a program with 25 children. Quickly seeing that the demand was greater than the space, the plunge of confidence into the depth was taken; they began to build a kindergarten. Through Divine Providence, funds became available to build it.
The Pallottine education seeks both the formation and integral promotion of the human being. Its founding principles are unity, charity, cooperation, development of critical spirit, initiative, responsibility, and Christian and scientific formation.
With the little ones, they seek to promote the integral development of the child, created in the image and likeness of God, helping to develop his social, physical, cognitive, emotional and spiritual capacities.
Pre-school education in Mozambique is not part of the state education system; it is a private initiative, especially of the Catholic missions.
It is vital for all children to attend preschool, because it is very important for their socialization and integral development. Thus, we are especially concerned about poor children, whose families cannot afford the monthly amount necessary to cover operating expenses.
But as we continue to pray and grow, we remember that if it is truly a project in service of God and His people, our Good Lord will provide all of the necessary graces.

Fr. General Jacob's Most Recent Bulletin
"It is easy to lose hope when young people find themselves alone and facing what seems like impossible challenges. In the darkest moments in my childhood, it was easy to be tempted to give up. As famine and ethnic war grips South Sudan, I cry for the children who are being robbed of their childhood. But I know the strength of the people and pray that the global community can come together and recognize this critical time to give hope to young people yearning for a different future." - Lopez Lomong
