THANK YOU to all who have donated so far to the Lenten Appeal for our sister parish - Our Lady Queen of Apostles in Nkokonjeru, Uganda.
Your donations help the farmers become educated on how to raise chicks. The farmers can then buy the chicks for a small fee. Once the chicks are full grown, the hens can lay eggs which then lead to more chicks. Some of the grown chickens can be used as meat or to lay more eggs. Any surplus eggs can be sold at market to help pay for other necessities such as other types of food, medicine, clothing, and for their children's school fees.
These two photos are of the children that go to two local schools in Nkokonjeru. Some of the students are wearing uniforms just as our own St. Eugene students do!
Please remember to pray for our family in Uganda. If you'd like to donate - you can put check or cash in the houses in the Narthex, or send a check to the parish office with Lenten project in memo line.
