BIS #4817 A SPECIAL INITIATIVE IN KUWAIT

by Gail Timmin's and Meryl D'Lima

 

KUWAIT, APR 5, 2016: To celebrate and share in the Light of our risen Lord, Jesus Christ, the Faith and Light community, which is a special endeavour for people with special needs, and the Liturgical Ministry Commission (LMC) – from St. Therese of the Child Jesus parish, Kuwait – visited a park on April 1.

 

The visit was organised by the Ray of Light division of the Faith and Light community. After a welcome prayer and some worship songs, the festivities began. Fun-filled games kept everyone entertained as they competed in a host of games.

 

The highlight of the morning was an Easter Egg hunt, where the children along with their families and friends had to find a basket of Easter eggs hidden for them. The Easter eggs were made and given as a small gesture of love from the liturgical ministry.

 

A family that recently joined the community then shared their thoughts at being part of the community. Kenny, a special needs child said, "It was a good idea to be at the park, praying and playing with my mother, father, brother, sister and friends."

 

Another LMC member added, "It is great to see the patience, love, humility, affection and dedication shown by the members of the Faith and Light community." Faith and Light is an international community founded in France, for persons with special needs, their family and friends.
