    I am grateful for your financial help and I used the funds to start a turkey project with the Parish kids. We have twenty female turkeys and will be buying five males at a later. We want to expand this project as a way of improving our livelihood. By the end of the year we should have over one hundred of them.
    Thank you all for love and sacrifice made to help us. God bless your generous hearts.
    With Gratitude and Love,
    Fr. Daniel Ochum

    Dear Ms. Laurelee,
    Easter greetings to you! and hope that you are doing ok.
    I did receive $140 that you sent us through Fr. Alex. It was such a timely assistance that enabled me to complete the term one school tuition for a young orphaned high school seminarian(LEONARD) whom I have been trying to help. Also part of this money helped me meet therapy fees for my Mom who is steadily recovering from a fractured hip. I am most grateful for this help!
    I am profoundly grateful to you and the 9th and 10th graders of St. Maria Goretti for organizing and sponsoring the 12th Annual Bake Sale and choosing to support my ministry with the proceeds. Much appreciation too to Monsignor , the families of the 9th and 10th graders, and the whole St. Maria Goretti Community for supporting the Bake Sale.
    May the Lord reward each one of you abundantly.
    Fr. Mark Oboth Odoi
    Archdiocese of Tororo, Uganda

    Happy, Holy Easter to All,

                We at St. Maria Goretti have just completed a wonderful Lenten season. We can now celebrate the beauty and joy of Easter. Each day during Lent so many attended daily Mass, Way of the Cross and adoration of the Blessed Sacrament in the Chapel. Many joined in Bible Study on Monday nights to share the Word of God. On Palm Sunday we experienced the Hosanna’s of the people who recognized Jesus in exhilaration.  On Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of Holy Week we gathered as a family to join together in worship, praise and song to give God glory as we celebrate and grew in our knowledge of God and fellowship in our Parish Mission. On Holy Thursday we gathered to give thanks to God for the institution of the Eucharist and the Priesthood he entrusted to us at the Last Supper. On Good Friday we mourned and suffered with Jesus, hanging on the Cross in reparation for our sins and salvation for us. On Holy Saturday we entered the darkness of our Church with the Easter Candle, symbolic of Christ, the Light of the World. During these ceremonies we recalled the Creation of the world and mankind, and our fallen nature through sin. Then we sang with gusto, and rang all the Church bells, lighted the candles, decorated our altar and church with flowers as we sang the “Glory to God in the highest”.  We are alive with Christ, fully alive through Baptism, inspired by the Holy Spirit, reconciled with God and each other, and uplifted by the Eucharist. What a wonderful, happy and holy Easter we have, as we celebrate the beauty of nature in our world and the special beauty of our lives with Christ.           

    A Happy, Holy Easter to our Goretti Family.  Msgr. Gauthreaux, Fr. Cyril, and all our Staff

    Dear Ms. Laurelee & (St. Maria Goretti Parish),
    Thank you so much. This is very wonderful and it brings back to me lots of memorials. I truly enjoyed my teaching experience while with you and I learned a lot.
    I am really touched by the sacrifices made by you, those kids and the rest of our friends. God knows it all, how He will reward each one of you.
     May I take this opportunity to wish you the best out of this Holy week and a glorious Easter. I love you all. God bless you abundantly.
    Fr. Alex
