OTHER WAYS TO GET INVOLVED
Can you spare a BIT of time? Our apostolate’s work is ever growing. AFSS is expanding its enrollment rapidly, and the campus is still being built. There is much work to be done, both at AFSS and Sacred Heart Seminary. If you have the time and ability to help, there are plenty of volunteer opportunities within our apostolate. The need is big, but so are the hearts of our supporters. Please consider helping— for short term jobs, as well as, longer term projects.
Typical positions may include:
Long-term need: on-going positions aid in the management of our apostolate, typically key leadership specialty positions. Put your skills to use in an entirely different situation, one that is half a world away!
Financial Analyst—evaluate and report on the monthly financial statements of AFSS and SHS.
CRM Manager—help us implement and maintain software that tracks donor contributions.
Social Media and Webmaster—help tell our story through our website:
IT Guru—help us use technology in a cost efficient and effective manner.
Tax Specialist—Prepare our annual Form 990 and any necessary State reports.
Historian—Help to maintain and organize the many pictures and stories of our apostolate.
Accountant—Help to maintain the books of our 501(c)3 corporation.
Parish Ambassadors—Be the main point of contact between our apostolate and your parish.
You can pray for the conversion of the hearts and minds of the conflicting parties to stop the military option as a means to settle their differences.
Prayer to St. Joseph for the Success of the Archbishop Flynn Secondary School Project
You chose St. Joseph and made him guardian and protector of your son Jesus Christ and his Mother Mary; By the same grace, you made him the patron of the universal church, the family and workers.
Beloved St. Joseph, a man of God and humble carpenter, you provided for your Holy Family by the labor of your hands, we entrust to your powerful intercession and protection all workers involved in the construction of Archbishop Harry Flynn Secondary School in Northern Uganda.
Bless and protect our benefactors and workers. We humbly ask you to obtain for us the necessary graces and means to complete the building of the school, which will be a sign of hope, providing sound Catholic education for the children of Northern Uganda, who suffered so much through the 21 years of war.
We pray this in Jesus Name. Amen.
Sacred Heart Seminary opens its door to all those friends and benefactors who wish to come and spend some time at Sacred Heart Seminary as lay missionaries to share their talents and skills with our seminarians, some work at our new school in Pader teaching or doing some construction work as a way of sharing knowledge with our youth and future priests. They would love to have you do something for and with them. We need teachers of science subjects (physics, chemistry, biology and mathematics) including computer skills. I always share with my American friends that there are three ways to be a missionary:
- By GOING to the mission to witness to God’s love with one’s presence,
- By SHARING ONE’S BLESSINGS with the mission,
- By PRAYING for the success of the mission.
These, among others, are some levels of participation in the missionary dimension of the Church as ordained and non-ordained ministers. The fact is that God has given to each one of us a gift and He desires that each one of us share it with our brothers and sisters in need. Sacred Heart Seminary will provide accommodations and meals. Our food is simple, tasty and nutritious and I’m sure you will enjoy it just as much as our recent visitors.
