Louicot St. Pierre
I was making my rounds at Castel-Pere this morning and this young man asked to speak to me. His name is Louicot and he is the oldest of nine children. His father had an accident on Wednesday, March 28th which has left him handicapped and unable to work. His mother is busy with the young children and has no marketable skills. Louicot would love to continue his education but there's no money; he'd love to learn a trade but can't afford to go to a vocational training school; he'd love to help his parents and younger siblings but cannot. To continue his classical education would cost $250 (a year for two more years). To learn a trade would cost about $300 plus the cost of tools. Learning a trade makes a lot of sense but our resources are stretched too thin to be able to help him. I told him that I would post his photo on this blog and that we'd pray for him.
