Dear Sister Aloysius,
Lawside Romania Project

Thank you very much for all your hospitality, during my recent visit to Bucharest.

Father Colin's 2005 visit to Romania

Father Colin's 2005 visit to Romania

Although only there for 5 days, we managed to pack so much into the short time. Unfortunately, it wasn’t the sights one would normally expect to see on a short city break, poverty, illness, such a lack of basic everyday needs, that we all take for granted, and this in a country only 3 hours from the UK. But they are memories that will always remain with me. Another memory that will remain is that of the welcome, that without exception I received at all the projects I visited.
The work being carried out by Lawside Romania Project is making such a difference to the lives of all that you reach out to, but I am aware that there remains still a great deal to be done.
To that end as a Parish, the people of Piltochry, Aberfeldy and Birnam hope to carry on fund raising for this wonderful project, and hope that our small contributions may continue to help.

With every best wish,

Father Colin Golden
