Bishop Hopes discussed with the PCR officers the importance of the Tunes for Peace Project, to which Pilgrimage People has contributed financially.

The funds by Pilgrimage People helped Tunes for Peace Project introduce new instruments and teach more students.

After the meeting, Bishop Hopes and his secretary, together with Fr. Maddison and had a tour in the centre where the students learn music and attended for few minutes one Guitar class. Another group of Tunes for Peace Students were practicing in the meeting hall, played some Arabic music.
