Outreach to Uganda

Eight Ascension parishioners and Father Eamon joined with 20 Blessed Trinity parishioners and their pastor, Fr. Pat Sheedy, along with Sr. Juliet (a Uganda sister) on a two-week mission trip to Uganda, June 23-July 7, 2019.  Fr. Pat and parishioners of Blessed Trinity Parish in Ocala have been traveling to Uganda for the past 13 years. This outreach mission started when Sr. Juliet asked some children at Blessed Trinity to help some people in her native land to build a church. When Fr. Pat heard about Sister’s request, he felt that the effort should be a parish outreach. Thus began a marvelous and most wonderful story. During the 13 years, this outreach has led to a beautiful Central Campus called Blessed Trinity parish. The home campus in Nalweyo has:

  • a beautiful Church that can seat about 800 people
  • a boarding primary and secondary school with about 1,200 students, grades 2-12
  • a beautiful Adoration Chapel
  • facilities to house and feed the boarding school students.
  • facilities to house many of the teachers
  • a rectory for four priests

In addition to all of the above facilities at the Central Campus, there are 30 sub-parishes, or outstations. Each of the 30 sub-parishes has a Church and some kind of a school.
