The Pastoral Work at NDU organized on Thursday, February 9, 2017, an outing with three underprivileged families on the occasion of the World Day of the Sick 2017 and the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes.
The day began with Pastoral members from both the main and Shouf Campus (SC), congregating in the morning at the main campus to attend Holy Mass celebrated by University Chaplain General Fr. George Nassif and University Chaplain Fr. Marc Khoubbieh.
Following Mass was a lunch gathering with interactive entertainment at the Church of St. Elias in Ballouneh. The group then headed to the Monastery of St. Sarkis and Bakhos in Achkout where they recited the Holy Rosary together and then visited the room of Fr. Antoun Tarabay. The day ended with an afternoon dessert shared with the brothers in the monastery.
