“I returned home with five pilgrims from the World Youth Day – Catholic Diocese of Parramatta covered in paint,” Bishop Anthony said.

“I had a wonderful experience visiting the toddlers and their teachers in preschool, with the priest in his tiny poor chapel and with people who will be living in new houses we through your generosity have built and that our young people are painting.

“It’s great to see the fruit of your work and the smiles of the new residents of the houses in the Lima favela.”
