Members donate Children’s Bibles to primary Schools in the NT
On Wednesday, 31st August 2017, Consoeur Frances Booth, Consoeur Maria Randazzo and Confrère Sean Parnell, Members of the Order of Malta NT Group (OM NT Group), were privileged to donate twenty one Children’s Bibles for seven of the thirteen NT Catholic Primary Schools. Another donation for the remaining schools will be made in 2018.
Laura Avery, Leader of Catholic Identity for the NT Catholic Education Office, welcomed the donation and will make the bibles available at various school assemblies over the next few months.
The donation is one of the activities undertaken by the NT OM Group for 2017 pursuant to the twofold Charism of the Order – ‘Obsequium Pauperum’ and ‘Tuitio Fidei’- by looking, respectively, at means by which expression of poverty – in this case ‘spiritual poverty’ – could be addressed and the defence of faith promoted, as many families of children attending Catholic and even public schools cannot afford that privilege of accessing the sacred written sources of our Christian faith.
Further, through this donation, the OM NT Group is able to play a small role in furthering the goals of ‘the NT Catholic Strategic Pastoral Plan ‘Towards 2017’.
