Chaplain's Message

John 3: 14-21

God sent his Son into the world, not to condemn the world, but to save the world through his Son.

Dear Friends,

Here is a little background about our Lent project to help a Catholic School for Deaf children in Lebanon. It is run by the Basilian Chouerite Sister of the Melkite Greek Catholic Church and is called the Father Roberts Institute. As well as Deaf children, it helps aged persons and those with mental illness. The weak Lebanese government leaves the support and care of these persons mostly to religious communities.
In 1942 an English Catholic priest, Fr. Ronald Roberts came to Lebanon as a British army chaplain. He saw many little deaf children who had no schooling. They were often kept at home, hidden away and denied opportunities given to other children. Father Roberts saw that education would be the best help for these children, so when he returned to Lebanon in 1959 he established his school for the Deaf with the focus on providing help and care for the poorest of the poor. Thanks to the Basilian Sisters the school continues this tradition. I am sure they will be very grateful for the help our St. René Goupil community can provide.
