Papal blessing for educator, catechist

Gail Austin-Pinder with her papal blessing and Fr Ian Taylor.

Serving for eight years at Mundo Nuevo, a community attached to San Rafael parish, Austin-Pinder supported the evangelisation crusades held by Fr Taylor at the school compound for the community. Children were baptised, instructed in the faith and received their First Holy Communion.

She also organised, with the help of the staff and the Ladies’ Auxiliary, an annual November Affair on the Feast of Christ the King and a biennial Family Fun Day on Indian Arrival Day. These two events brought together the residents of the community regardless of religious beliefs and customs to support the school and have fun together.
