A nice visit was scheduled on Friday, September 20th. The Pilgrim Icon of the Virgin of Czestochowa reached the Chapel of Our Lady of Fatima and the Saint Joaquin Foundation and also Saint Ana in La Aurora, an urban parish of the Daule canton. Although the chapel was the first in the sector, that day it belongs to the Saint Albert the Great Parish, which serves as rector's church.
The Foundation is a free center for grandparents, which operates from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., so that they are not left alone in the house but share different activities such as crafts, painting and games, they also receive a small snack and learn to make rosaries.
Ines Pincay works at the Foundation and commented that it was very emotional for the 19 grandparents who visit the center. “At the moment the Icon of Mary arrived, the bells rang so that they would approach to receive Her. We had invited everyone in the morning, to pray the Holy Rosary and sing to the Mother of God. The grandmothers were very emotional and some asked for the health of their children and grandchildren”, said Ines.
