Help Build a Church for Remote Village in Uganda

Help Build a Church for Remote Village in Uganda

In a tiny village in eastern Uganda, 423 Catholics gather under the shade of a mango tree for Mass. Many of these worshippers are elderly and can’t make the trek to the parish church in the next town over, 2.5 miles away. So every Sunday, Fr. Sunny Mattathil, MSFS, comes to them, and the people pray that one day, they’ll have a church of their own.
The villagers of Kyamwinula made 25,000 bricks by hand so they could build their church. People are very poor here. Most are subsistence farmers with little or nothing to spare. But they came together, made bricks for their church, and got ready to build. Sadly, before they could cure the bricks, a rainstorm came a washed their work away. The bricks were destroyed.
