Latin Patriarchal Vicar for Jordan Bishop William Shomali inaugurated on Saturday, September 30, the new house for boys "Mary Mother of Hope" and the Parish Hall at Our Lady of the Mount Church in Anjara.

Present at the inauguration ceremony were Minister of Social Development Mrs. Hala Bseiso Lattouf, Bishop Maroun Lahham, Governor of Ajloun Falah Al-Swailmeen, priests and nuns of the Incarnate Word Community who oversee the monastery and the house, a number of dignitaries, a number of priests and nuns, and a crowd of people from Anjara and the neighboring areas.

The new site houses a number of young men and women who have nowhere to live. During the celebration, the parish hall of Our Lady of the Mount Church was opened Anjara township, Ajloun Governorate, northern Jordan.

The ceremony was opened by an address made by Fr. Suleiman Shobash who said that had it not been for the virtue of love, life would have no purpose. He stated that the project of Anjara is based on love and noble goals, where its noble objective is to give a helping hand to parishioners who need support in Jordan, as well to back Christians and Muslims in the public and private sectors.

Minister of Social Development Lattouf underlined the great interest conveyed by His Majesty King Abdullah II and the efforts undertaken by relevant institutions in Jordan, which are designed to care for children, by referring in this regard to the Convention on the Rights of the Child which Jordan signed in 2006.

She added that the Ministry of Social Development has several plans that deal with the less privileged classes of society, and lauded the significant role played by associations affiliated with the Church in this regard.

Bishop Shomali highlighted the active role played by the Church in support of the vulnerable classes of people, stressing that new house "Mary Mother of Hope" is designed to support this very class particularly the children. Thanking all those who contributed to attaining this project, he lauded the efforts exerted by the King, the government and the people of Jordan for their support of charity projects. He concluded his address by bidding farewell to Fr. Simon Goliardo who lived in Anjara for some time and plans to go to Syria to fulfill his humanitarian mission.

Father Hugo, who is in charge of the house "Mary Mother of Hope, said: "I thank the Divine Providence that cares for this institution. We are not alone at all." He concluded by giving some details about the new institution, referring to the supporting institutions, particularly the Latin Patriarchate, Caritas Jordan and other institutions. He also thanked the Almighty God for His infinite grace and care of this institution which is regarded as an additional achievement of the Latin Patriarchate.
