Our Mission

The St. Peter’s Uganda Mission has been continuously involved in working with St. Anthony parish in Uganda since 2006.  The mission efforts have included the development of a student sponsorship program which has introduced the opportunity for a Catholic education for many young children.  It has also advanced other needs in support of the parish including the startup of a pig breeding program for the purposes of food and sale, and capital fund raising for a roof, altar and windows for the Church of St. Anthony. 

Sister Parish Relationship

In the late 1990’s the Catholic Church reassessed Catholic Relief Services to determine the true mission of working together in worldwide efforts for all Catholics. At that time The Church developed the concept of “Global Solidarity” that looked at relief efforts not only from the viewpoint of supplying resources but more importantly developing strong relationships between and among Catholics everywhere. In this effort parishes can join with each other in sharing their cultural and spiritual beliefs by exchanging their thoughts, ideas, hopes, prayers, and traditions. In these simple exchanges each of us will have the opportunity to experience the realities of global solidarity. A Sister Parish relationship opens our doors and our faith to these exchanges.
