The front entrance to Sacred Heart Mission in Kakinada was so muddy and uninviting, volunteers joined Fr. Varghese and visiting priest, Fr. Mariadas, in late August, in laying a concrete slab. Faithful of all ages pitched in, eager to improve their new little mission.
With a fledgling congregation and scarce funds, Fr. Varghese needs parishioners to lend a hand in beautifying their mission.
Despite heat and grit, workers had a fine time forming a work crew.
Digging earth by hand with primitive tools made a tough job tougher.
Workers took a welcome break to enjoy a meal. Shown above, Fr. Mariadas lends a hand serving.
