St. Mary Orphanage, Pathein: New Building Opened
On Christmas Day, Bishop John Hsane Gyi blessed and opened the new, completely refurbished building of the girls’ orphanage.
The new house replaces a 100-year-old colonial house, which had deteriorated considerably due to poor maintenance and lack of money. The new building has the same outline as the old colonial house and fits homogeneously in the garden property. About half of the eighty-five girls and three sisters have moved into the new bright building.
