Sister Parish Update & October Calendar

Let there be light! Thanks to your generosity, solar power, lighting, and a refrigerator were installed at Nyakishenyi Catholic Health Centre this week!

We are continuing to raise money for construction of a maternity ward. Checks should be made payable to OLSOS with “Sister Parish-Maternity Ward” in the Memo and can be dropped in the Sunday Collection or sent to the Parish Office, or you can make a donation online.

Tank Teams
commit to pray, reach out to a community with a photo and letter, and pledge a small amount each month. Collectively, each team will raise $300 per month, enough to fund a rainwater storage system in 1 year. Let’s fill up Tank Team #1 by October 31!

Questions? Contact Tammi at (360)990-0900 or

A small Christian Community level, ten families form a community. These come together to recite the rosary during the months of May and October and for the Way of the Cross during the season of Lent. They move from one home to another every morning day after day. The aim is to try and live like the first Christian community (Acts 2/42).

Begin with Prayer:

  • Pray the rosary daily
  • Pray for priests and vocations to the religious life
  • Consider making a consecration to Jesus through Mary
  • Pray for Uganda
  • Pray for Bishop Callistus Rubaramira
  • Pray for Sr. Hedwig, Sister of Mary & Joseph
  • Pray for Fr. Ignatius Arinaitwe, a priest in Kabale Diocese on his birthday and name day
  • Pray for Fr. Boniface

Opportunities to Make a Difference:

  • Join a Tank Team (each team commits to donation $300/mo)
  • Education Sponsorship: Judith Amutuhaire ($200/term)
  • Internet Project ($1,500)
  • Maternity Ward Construction ($25,000)
  • Microscope ($400)
  • School Uniforms
