While traveling in the eastern U.S. Father Riwa and the Ozars stopped in Avalon, New Jersey where Theresa Montgomery (pictured below with Father Riwa) hosted a supper for the group. Also attending were Msgr. John Frey from St. Brendan the Navigator Parish in Avalon and Father Neil (Pictured above). Father Neil is a long time supporter of St. Clare. Eighty-four year old Father Neil is blind, but has served as a parish priest for many years, taking his turn celebrating Mass without missing a beat. Father Neil is very in turn to what is happening in the Church and in the world. The group discovered that Father Neil and Father Riwa were ordained the same year.
Joining the group traveling to Kenya in February are Andy and Cathy Cahill from Central Jersey near the Jersey Shore. Cathy is a pediatric nurse practitioner and will work with children who are HIV/AIDS positive. Andy is an investment manager for FirstCity Crestone, LLC and will focus on creating a video and photographic record of St. Clare.
The Cahills will join three others and spend two weeks at the St. Clare campus of the Children’s Village lending their skills and expertise to improve the life of the children and lend their skills to the staff.
The Cahills depart from New Jersey on February 10 and will return on February 26.
