This Weekend

Sister Hilda Alonyo, a member of the Little Sisters of Mary Immaculate of Gulu (LSMIG), an indigenous Congregation of Catholic Sisters founded in 1936 in the Archdiocese of Gulu in Northern Uganda, will visit our parish and speak at all our Masses this weekend.


Since 2016,  the Congregation has been responding to a people who are recovering from four decades of civil war, while concurrently dealing with influx of refugees from neighboring South Sudan and the Democratic Republic of Congo. The global crisis of COVID-19 and lack of access to vaccines has generated an untold humanitarian crisis in northern Uganda. 


Those who would like to support the mission can make a check (payable to "Saint William") or cash donation during Sunday's second collection.
