Dear Fr. Martin, St.Kevin Parishioners and Friends,
Fr. Fabius embraces you with blessings and greetings for the new year.
You may recall reading “A Ugandan Experience” last October detailing my stay with Fr. Fabius. Challenges identified was building a temporary kitchen and providing adequate food for the children of Pere Achte Pre-School and Primary School. These goals have been achieved! The temporary kitchen has been built and the children received a daytime meal of maize porridge for the 3rd Term (Sept – early Dec) 2018.
This is an amazing achievement (on your part) reflecting not only a caring community, but one that is excited about been involved and emotionally connected in making peoples’ lives better.
If you wish to donate to this worthy cause, contact the parish office. No amount is too small!
