Women's Guild

Archbishop Cyprian of Kampala has now invited me to preach in his diocese in the month of May next year.

I met the Cardinal Wamala, recently retired, who encouraged me to persevere.

I also met the recently appointed Nuncio for Uganda, His Excellency Paul Tschang and told of my hopes for the 40th anniversary of the Encyclical Humanae Vitae

construction. The original dormitories were much too small and they will now be two new classrooms instead. Many thanks indeed for all the generous donations which you gave.

The kitchen was a tremendous success. It consists of three stoves (blue tiled) which are fuelled by wood, and in which the various differentNew Kitchen dishes can be cooked. The children then line up by the long hatch (right) and collect their meal. At the back of the kitchen is a massive water tank, with a tap right at the bottom, so that water is easily available for the kitchen (see bottom right).

Everyone was delighted and grateful to my benefactors for amazing and wonderful generosity. Since they couldn't thank you personally they thanked me instead, and gave me many presents most of which I gave to poor people because I couldn't carry them home.

Mass on 1st Sunday of Advent

We had a day of recollection at Ngoma and afterwards the nuns served lunch (left). Not practical in England in November, but in Uganda they don't have to worry about the cold.
