Kloof church group cares for the community

The soothing day of music was ended with guests enjoying tea and cake.

THE Care4You group of the Our Lady of Mercy Catholic Church in Kloof recently hosted a Christmas morning tea for parishioners as an act of love and care within the church.

Patricia Houbert, organiser of the group, said Care4You promotes a sense of loving and caring in the parish community during trying as well as good times.

The Count Filip Kormuth School of Music entertained the guests with pieces of classical music performed by Count Filip and his students as part of the count’s outreach programme.

Works by Albinez, Chopin, Mendelsohn, Debussy and others were presented. Students, ranging from eight to 15 years old, played pieces on the piano and guitar while Count Filip entertained the audience on the accordion with a work by Monti and a composition by Tarrega on guitar.

He also played several classical works on the piano.

“The Care4You group is very active in the church and, among others, serves the needy, sick and lonely by visiting them, providing meals, driving them to the doctor and assisting with shopping.

“Important occasions like the birth of a baby are celebrated with flowers or gifts. The group assists with a variety of activities, such as walking, crochet and many more, and of course, concerts, such as the Christmas tea. The thread that runs through all that the group does is to create a sense of sharing, loving and caring,” said Houbert.

After the performance, everyone was treated to tea and cake.
