Sr. Sumreen Visits Ashbourne from Pakistan
Monday, August 14th 2017

Sr. Sumreen, Missionary Sister of St. Thomas the Apostle, working alongside Fr. Tom Rafferty, Ashbourne, visited our parish on vacation from Pakistan in recent weeks.  Sr. Sumreen is principal of St. Thomas’ Middle School, K.P.K., Pakistan, a Catholic School for minority religions, (Christians: Catholics, Protestants, and Hindu’s) educating approximately 100 students in languages, sciences, and social studies.  Many of the students come from disadvantaged backgrounds and do not have the financial means to attend mainstream school.  St. Thomas’ school, because it is a Catholic school, receives little funding from the Government, and so relies on resources Fr. Tom acquires from benefactors.  Anyone wishing to support Sr. Sumreen’s school can make donations through the Parish Office.
