Bishop Smith to visit South East Asia


On 19 - 28 November, Bishop Michael Smith will visit areas of South East Asia to review projects sponsored by the Diocese of Meath after the devastating Tsunami of 26 December 2004.                                                                         Bishop Smith has been invited by Cardinal Michael Kitbunchu of Thailand. 


The Diocese of Meath coordinated an appeal involving all 69 parishes, numerous schools and various fundraising events, all of which raised over €1.1 million, part of which was sent to Southern Thailand.


During the visit, Bishop Smith will bless and officially open a number of projects,  built and paid for by the people of this diocese for adult training and development, including the Saint Agnes Professional Training Centre helping the jobless to acquire new skills and new opportunities.  Built on seven acres, the Saint Agnes Centre trains people from across a wide area and accommodates them in two other hostels, Saint Joseph and Saint Mary’s, to give people every chance of availing of the resources. The Bishop will also open the Saint Michael’s Centre, a multi-purpose building for the victims, which includes a medical treatment clinic and a museum of the Tsunami.                                        


The Bishop’s visit is organized by Archbishop Pennacchio, Papal Nuncio in Thailand.  The Archbishop said "We are most appreciative of the generous support given by the people from the Diocese of Meath.  The visit of Bishop Smith gives us an opportunity to show him the good work that has been done and to thank him, the parishes and schools for being there when we needed it and for staying with us.  In Thailand, we saw two things. One was the Tidal Wave (Tsunami) but the other was a Wave of Love, the enormous solidarity and support we received.  This has helped to heal wounds in very practical ways.”
