Missionary Appeal – August 5-6

The weekend of August 5-6, 2023, St. Margaret of Scotland will participate in the annual Archdiocesan  Missionary Appeal.  Each year, every parish in the Archdiocese of St. Louis is assigned a missionary, who comes to the parish to promote awareness of the Church’s missionary efforts and ask for prayers and financial support.  St. Margaret will welcome Fr. George Ssemmombwe, who will preach on behalf of Broader Vision School in Entebbe, Uganda. Since 2014, thanks to generous donations primarily from St. Louis families, the Broader Vision School has grown from a small single story school building to a three-building boarding school serving more than 450 Ugandan children – more than half of whom were previously living on the street. Funds raised by the Mission Appeal will help Fr. George continue to serve these children through assistance with tuition, housing for the faculty, a safe cooking space, and food for the children. Many of you may remember Fr. George from when he lived at St. Margaret of Scotland some years ago – he is looking forward to staying at the Rectory again for the visit.

Envelopes for the Mission Appeal will be in the pews.  Please welcome Fr. George and thanks in advance for your generosity!
