A DREAM COMES TRUE

“I have been to Uganda six times, lived there with the people, saw the grand opening of the school (AFSS), stayed in the seminary, and of course in this remote village of Adilang. I have seen young kids as they were dying from malaria and dysentery. I have seen the looks on the faces of mothers who lost their infants during childbirth. This is what brought me to dream of a clinic.”

These are the words of our longtime benefactor and board member, David Fagerlee, who is making his dream come true.

Mission Funds Help Archbishop Flynn School Meet Needs of Students in Uganda

Archbishop Flynn Secondary School opened February 16, 2009 with a pioneer class of 34 students in one grade level. The current enrollment is 352 students in four grade levels. The planned capacity is 720 students in six grade levels, according to Desautels.

The Adunu Maleng Pa Yesu Society receives funds from The Society for the Propagation of the Faith to support the formation of pastoral agents, seminarians, religious, catechists, support diocesan pastoral programs, fund the maintenance and ongoing operating subsidies of Sacred Heart Seminary and fund the construction and ongoing operating subsidies of Archbishop Flynn Secondary School.

TOUCHED BY THE LOVE OF STRANGERS

Sacred Heart Seminary embodies the spirit of hope for better tomorrows by providing a refuge for young men who want to follow God’s call to the priesthood. Like Beatrice and Walter, the students we introduced from AFSS in past issues, these seminarians have also been given a chance to experience life as a precious gift from God. The following is a collective letter of appreciation written by eight of the current seminarians. You won’t have to read very long to know the depth of their gratitude, to know that they, too, have been touched by the love of strangers.
