St. Luke’s Lenten gifts will become small miracles in Uganda
COVID-19 is affecting children and their families the world over. Uganda is a country rent with poverty and the pandemic brings one more layer of struggle. This struggle is especially felt in the urban areas, where it is more difficult to establish gardens and feed families. One example is the church’s need to cut wages for Mr. Mulondo. He is an ever-present leader and superintendent of all schools in the diocese for twenty years. He is a constant contact for the Companion Diocese Committee.
Our Ugandan Children
What is the position of our Ugandan children (orphans)? Colleen Wood writes “I saw a country where everyone has to hustle to survive … The clothes of the children were not in very good shape and some had no money for uniforms. The outdoor kitchen kept blowing over. Bishop Michael asks us to pray for Our Ugandan Children. He states “they often live with families who have few resources.”"
7 March is Uganda Sunday at St. Luke’s. Colleen Woods of Alberta travelled to Central Buganda in February of 2020. She will be our speaker and will present photos and comments via Zoom, which will be inserted in the online service.
We can share our Lenten Gifts and make a difference to children and their families, in our sister Diocese of Central Buganda. ‘With bright educated children the future is much brighter for Uganda’ said previous Bishop Jackson. Equally important, St. Luke’s parish can help to rebuild the Companion Diocese Committee’s Orphan Fund. Listed below are the various and easy ways to make a difference!
Glory to God whose power working in us
can do infinitely more than we can ask or imagine.
Thank you for thinking of the our orphaned children in our sister diocese.
