Our Mayor A.S. Scholten came today to gave us a conference about our city Venlo and the rest of his domain. It is good for us to know about more our municipality – its history, its own tradition and custom – after all we belong to his territory and we certainly experience his help and support. Since we do not go out and mix with the people outside our cloister, he came and brought them closer to us through his conference. We are more than ready to do our share of supporting and contributing to the growth and building up of our bigger community through our prayer and sacrifices. May our Lord continue to bless our municipality and its dwellers as well as this whole country, the Netherlands.
