so that she will enjoy them and find peace in her life.

February 13, 2008 - The students at Immaculate Conception Catholic School have come to realize that the Lenten season calls us to pray, to fast and to give alms. By giving alms, Jesus teaches us to make the needs of others our own, especially the needy of our world. Throughout the school year and during this season of Lent, the Staff and students at Immaculate Conception School show their love and support for their foster child, Chisinsi Sinoya and her small village. Chisinsi’s community is situated in Lilongwe, the capital of Malawi, the region that is part of the Central African Plateau.

Students and staff organize fundraising activities to support Chisinsi in attending primary school that provides her with a nutritious meal, medical assistance, and a good quality of life.
