The group assigned to our Parish this year 2022 Mission Appeal is, the Congregation of the Handmaids of the Holy Child Jesus. Sister Catherine Theodore Uboh, HHCJ will be speaking to us from the Congregation of the Handmaids of the Holy Child Jesus on the weekend of August 27/28, 2022.
The Congregation of the Handmaids of the Holy Child Jesus is a Religious Congregation founded in Nigeria in 1931 by a Religious Sister of Charity, Mother Mary Charles Magdalen Walker, RSC, Servant of God, in response to many needs of Africa. Today, they have over 900 professed Sisters, ministering in seven countries of Africa - (Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, Cameroon, Sierra Leone, Togo and Tanzania); three countries in Europe (England, Germany and Italy); North America (the United States of America, and Canada) and in Grenada in West Indies.
Their mission focus this year is on Nigeria, Sierra Leone and Cameroon missions where starvation, socio-political wars etc. are going on - to provide rehabilitation, care for the vulnerable people and education for over 205 students with low vision, partial vision and total blindness. They also need funds to:1) provide fresh water; 2) buy educational materials like print textbooks and instructional materials, Braille machines, Audio materials etc. and 3) For feeding and clothing of the most vulnerable part of the body of Christ. They need our prayers and financial assistance to continue this mission.
Your support to this worthy cause will be an immense encouragement to the Congregation of the Handmaids of the Holy Child Jesus as they continue to serve God in humanity. Thank you for your prayerful and financial support and God bless you.
