Holy Resurrection Church, Palatine, IL to host Uganda Children’s Fund founders
PALATINE, IL [MW Diocese Communications] — Archpriest Alexander Kuchta and the faithful of Holy Resurrection Church invite Chicago-area faithful to attend a presentation by Peter and Sharon Georges of the Saint Nicholas Uganda Children’s Fund after the 10:00 a.m. Divine Liturgy on Sunday, May 22, 2016. The church is located at 1449 North Quentin, Palatine, IL.
“We hope that area faithful will join us as Peter and Sharon share their experiences from over 13 years serving in Uganda while providing a colorful and inspiring update on the Children’s Fund’s current work,” said Father Alexander. “The Fund sponsors ministry to AIDS orphans and other vulnerable children in the slums of Kampala, Uganda.”
Peter and Sharon, originally members of the Midwest Diocese’s Saint Nicholas Church, Mentor, OH, established the Saint Nicholas Uganda Children’s Fund in 2005.
“They began paying school fees for three orphans while they were working as Orthodox missionaries in 2003,” explains Father Alexander. “Within two years, the number of children they were assisting had grown to over 50.”
Now in its 12th year, the Children’s Fund supports over 250 children in school and provides additional assistance to needy families.
