Tree planting ...

On April 5th 2008, the boys at st Joseph's boys’ home, Maasin, celebrated the death and legacy of Marie Madeleine.

The boys planted a beautiful flowering shrub in the garden of their home. The boys themselves prepared the ground and did the planting.

A significant aspect of life at St Joseph's is caring for the house and garden.

Many of the boys in St. Joseph's have no other home; some were abandoned and taken from the street and so creating a beautiful and clean place to live is essential to their learning.

Marie Madeleine d’Houët had a great love of orphans. We remember that in accordance with her wish she be buried with the orphans at Gentilly, Paris, France.
