ST VINCENT AND THE GRENADINES
The dream of a gazebo and paved pathway for the children of St Benedict’s Children’s Home became a reality with an official opening ceremony on a day which most Vincentians would go to the beach or a picnic. June 11 had been declared a one-off, non-working public holiday in the country in celebration of the country’s appointment as a member of the UN Security Council.
The project was funded by the Government of Australia, through the Direct Aid Program. Present at the ceremony were His Excellency John Pilbeam, High Commissioner of the Australian High Commission, Vicar General Msgr Michael Stewart, Sr Nyra-Anne Pajotte, among other well-wishers.
