San Francisco Mission - blessing of the site

The new San Francisco Mission took an important step forward when the local community made over a piece of land to the Diocese for development. Documents were signed in the presence of several hundred people, the Eucharist was celebrated and the land blessed.
Until now the land has been used as a rubbish tip. It is on a steep slope and two steps will have to be cut for construction work to begin. The proposal is to build a medical post, facilities for a children's centre, ocupational training worshops and a church. The photos show the Bishop with members of the local area committee and the celebration of the Holy Eucharist.
