Attending Mosaic school

The ATS pro Terra Sancta project, “Gethsemane: preserve the past and train the future“, was also created to show schoolchildren the work of the young men of the Mosaic Center in Jericho.

The video, realized by the Franciscan Media Center, shows a project that focuses on everything from the education of children to beauty and dialogue. Without many words and through actions of a work that must be built piece by piece, with lots of patience.
