“...I was thirsty and you gave me drink...” MT 25:35
WATER, WATER, EVERYWHERE AND NOT A DROP TO DRINK! So the saying goes. But you can help others in need of this precious commodity. How crucial water is to our bodies, our well being, our harvest, our world. Without water we would be devastated. Could you walk miles to the nearest watering hole? Bath in a muddy river? Drink un-filtered water? We often take for granted the simple task of turning on a facet and having access to clean running water, flipping a light switch in a dark room to light our way around, and flushing a toilet to carry
away waste water. Throughout Africa, there is a critical lack of clean water for drinking and sanitation. Almost one
billion people do not have access to safe water. One billion if not more. Sr. Rita Sturwold of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur will speak about the need for clean water and electric in Africa at all our Masses the weekend of August 17/18. A special collection will be taken up to help the Sisters provide life-changing electricity and clean water to those less fortunate in Africa.
Please be as generous as possible to help.
