The staff and pupils of C.A.M.

On Good Shepherd Sunday when there was a gathering of young people from the two La Salette parishes in Santiago del Estero for a day on vocations. Srs Marguerite Goddard and Stephanie Earl had the opportunity to talk a little about vocations and the life of Marie Madeleine and to plant another tree of the same species in the grounds of the church of Our Lady of La Salette in La Banda. They were ably assisted by Fr. Fernando Altimiranda, ,Br. Pedro Batistini and the young people. May the charism of Marie Madeleine take root and flourish like the young tree. The work has already begun as Sr. Eli Peralta is from La Banda.
