Rafael and Ana had come to say thank you to the Congregation for their sponsorship of Rafael this summer at the APATRIS summer school in the Central Algarve area which has been carefully planned to provide care for children with special needs. Rafael needs constant Adult supervision and care and the Summer School will provide this and much, much more.

For 9 weeks during the school holidays Rafael will be participating in a whole range of exciting activities Monday to Friday. The program includes Swimming, trips to the beach, sports and traditional games, all adapted to meet specialist needs, as well as visits to museums and cultural places of interest, All of this under qualified and trained supervision.

As a very special gift the Congregation had bought Rafael a pair of bright red swimming shorts (the colour of his team - Benfica), a beach towel, sun protection and a stylish bag to keep all his things together every day.

Speaking on behalf of the Congregation Jane Caulfield-Kerney said “When we heard that this young man needed specialist care and stimulation during his school holidays, and that care was available right on his doorstep we were delighted to be able to step in and help. We look forward to hearing of all the wonderful adventures he is going to have over the Summer, and Ana can be confident that he will be well looked after by trained staff.”
