ARGENTINA, Teresa Fiorucci •
On Saturday, August 26th, Children’s Day was celebrated at the City Bell Wayside Shrine, a wayside shrine in the middle of the city, which, with all its grounds, its rooms and especially its Schoenstatt Family is at the service of the neighborhood. —
It was a heavenly day. The Lord gave us the gift of a spring day. More than 200 children and 80 adults visited us. There were games, sausages, ice cream, popcorn and many delicious things.
We received, in advance, many toys that we fixed, putting them in conditions for a second chance; we bagged them and gave them to all the children.
A mother’s testimony
“Super happy and grateful for the great work that was done for the Children’s Day celebration!” she wrote, as soon as she arrived home after visiting the wayside shrine with her daughter.
“There was a lot of work behind the scenes, looking for gifts, wrapping them, sorting them, preparing snacks, refreshments, candy, shows, games… Nothing was missing and it seems that there were many more children than expected and everyone was very happy. My baby Sofia won a prize, she was very happy and when we were leaving she told me: ‘Mom, I’m happy, I had a wonderful time’ Thank you all very much! “, she ends.
