On Saturday 18th June 2016 fathers and interested males from the Fond Assau community and environs gathered to talk on issues related to fathering and parenting. A distinction made clear by the guest speaker; Pastor Dolston Morian. Fathers engaged in prayer, gave heart-felt testimonies and received life-changing information supported by the bible. Every male left the session knowing the myriad of negative effects of “fatherless” children.
Everyone present stood and made a commitment to finish the journey of fatherhood strong, without dwelling on a shaky start or any mistakes made along the way.
The evening ended with a short presentation to recognize a few of the fortunate participants. Sponsors included St. James Club Morgan Bay Resort (refreshments), Johnson’s Hardware (gift items) and Rackel Charles (Father’s Day pins)
