Lenten Project 2019
We are continuing to support the Sustainable Agriculture program for our sister parish Our Lady Queen of Apostles in Nkokonjeru, Uganda. Due to the generous hearts of the St. Eugene Parishioners, the agriculture programs have been thriving. The money raised this year will again go towards their piggery project so that the pig sty can be completed and they will also be able to buy good breeds of piglets.
The pigs provide much needed manure that is a rich fertilizer for growing crops as well as protein/meat for their diets. A little money goes a long way in Uganda. When the people are able to grow crops for their own diets, they then have surplus to sell at markets. With the extra money, they then can send their children to school, buy clothing, other food items and medications. Here is a photo of some of the children that benefit from the Sustainable Agriculture relationship. The children greeted the recent travelers from St. Eugene and are from a far sub-parish on Lake Victoria (Ssenyi landing site).
Donations can be put in the houses in the Narthex or checks can be sent to the parish office with "Lenten Project" in the memo line. You can also donate online. Go to the Ministries link, then Twinning Committee link, then 2019 Lenten project. Scroll down to Donate link.
THANK YOU ST. EUGENE PARISHIONERS!
GOD IS GOOD! ALL THE TIME!
