The St. Patrick-St. Francis Connection

Back to Blog

The St. Patrick Primary School community in Uganda celebrated the very first Mass in their brand new St. Francis of Assisi Auditorium on St. Patrick's Day, 2022. Fr. Julius concelebrated the Mass with Fr. Charles, the school's chaplain. (He is a diocesan priest from the Mbarara Archdiocese who celebrates Mass for the school on Wednesday and Sunday each week.) Fr. Charles gave the homily. 

Following the Mass was a 2-hour program, during which this year's school staff was introduced to the assembly. The student body (and teachers) sang the school anthem; the choir sang an original composition about education for girls.
