Providing Safe Water for People in Need

Catholics@Work Tuesday, Nov. 14

For millions of rural Ugandans, morning begins with a search for water, often miles away and barely safe to drink. A fifth of Uganda’s children die due to bad water.

A little-noticed Christian ministry, Wells of Life, has drilled 300 wells providing safe water to rural Ugandans, usually next to a school or church.

On Tuesday, Nov. 14, Nick Jordan will tell about this ministry to Catholics@Work.

Jordan works with Peter Callahan of St. Perpetua parish in Lafayette, the president of Wells of Life.

The program, at Crow Canyon Country Club, begins at 7 a.m, preceded by Mass at 6:30. It ends at 8:15. All are welcome to attend; please click on the Register button to the left to make reservations.
