Our first donation in 2014
from Holy Spirit to St. Joseph was used for two purposes by Fr. Sam for his
parishioners. 1. To build a Piggery for
the “Youth of the Parish”, and 2. Establish a Woman’s Co-Op. The “Youth” are
considered from age 14-34 and they are responsible for raising 2 pigs. One is
for St. Joseph and the other is for their own family. Each woman who is part of
the Woman’s Co-op contributes money monthly to the Co-Op. The women meet for fellowship, advice,
support and they are allowed to borrow money from the Co-Op for their family
needs and then pay back their loan with interest.
Our second donation happened in Spring 2016 when Holy Spirit raffled off a “Vehicle” to raise money for a “Vehicle” for Fr. Samwel to use to service his Parishioners. A vehicle allows him to minister to parishioners up to 20 miles away.
Goals for our Sister Parish
1. Have Fr. Sam come to Holy Spirit in Summer of 2018 to meet the generous people who have helped his community.
2. Explore helping St. Joseph the Worker build an outdoor overhang so when Mass is held outdoors, it would provide shelter from the rain.
