First communion

By Naomi Corera, September 26, 2017

Dear friends,

Greetings! An update of recent happenings here in Uganda.

From the western part of beautiful, cool Fort Portal, I have moved to the hot north of Arua Diocese in Adjumani District. This area of full of camps and settlements of refugees from South Sudan. This is where the Bishop had requested a nursery school, which we already built through your generous gifts.

I have found my niche working with Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Church. MARYLAND is a large area with a school health center and an orphanage of South Sudanese children right behind us. Challenges include no electricity, and thus no power to draw water from the well. The Bishop has kindly offered me a nice, comfortable home in the Diocese, 6 hours away.

I will begin to use it when I go there for meetings with the Diocese. The Bishop wants me to help with the “Holy Childhood Society,” which is directly under the Pope. The local priests and community have noticed my organizational skills and need my help with many projects. I am so happy to help! I have started Eucharistic Adoration in the Parish and in the 2 high schools.

More to follow…God bless you all.
