We pray, too,  for the visit of New Beginnings Orphanage Children’s Choir from Uganda  on August 29.  Some parishioners have visited the orphanage as part of a team from Fields of Life.

  • a new Thursday Club to reach out to children we hope to launch in September. Pray for the raising up of leaders who will be available and committed to running the group.
