The Helen Chorale of St Joseph will host a Poor Man’s Dinner on November 9 at St Joseph’s Convent, St Joseph from 6 p.m. During the dinner, entertainment will be provided by the Helen Chorale and the St Joseph’s RC Youth Choir.
Funds raised are slated for Lourdes House, Arouca. Opened and blessed in 2004 by Archbishop Edward Gilbert CSsR, the home is dedicated to the comfort and care of the elderly Sisters of the congregation of St Joseph of Cluny after their years of selfless service.
The St Joseph of Cluny congregation, which is present in 60 countries (five continents), first came to Trinidad in 1836 when it was invited to the English-speaking West Indies to educate the daughters of French planters. Its purpose has expanded far beyond that original role.
