ASIA/JORDAN - Construction of Our Lady of Mount Center starts in Anjara

Monday, 16 May 2016 social works

Anjara (Agenzia Fides) - At the initiative of the Parish “The Visitation of Our Lady”, construction work of a multipurpose center has started in Anjara, Jordan. The project, named after Our Lady of Mount, will serve the parish’s long-awaited purposes and needs. The project, which is located a few kilometers south of Ajloun, will meet the growing demand for more living space, especially for the children. The children are currently staying in the religious community’s house as there isn’t proper accommodation for them to reside in.

The new center will consist of 3 floors. The first floor comprises 10 rooms and 5 bathrooms and will be used by the children. The ground floor and the second floor will serve as a reception area for pilgrims and visitors. The structure will also be used to hold meetings, lectures and workshops. The third floor will be the basement and will be used as a multipurpose community hall for various events.
The work, which will be managed and supervised by the Latin Patriarchate Project Service Department in Jordan, is expected to be finished in an 8-month period. (GV) (Agenzia Fides 16/05/2016)
