In the Catholic News of January 6, I read: ‘Fr Michel gone but will never be forgotten’. The anniversary of the death of Fr Michel de Verteuil CSSp is a reminder of his legacy that every human being, especially the weak and vulnerable needs a Jesus person who will stand with them and enable them to walk away from their plight and find the space to create a new life for themselves as a child of God.
Late last year, Mayaro Initiative for Private Enterprise Development (MIPED) celebrated a milestone. MIPED was formed in 2002 to transform the (Mayaro/Guayaguayare) area into a model community, creating self-sustaining employment, improving training facilities and developing opportunities for enterprise and achievement, while building self-esteem.
