Uganda School Project


Grand Knight Jerry Vens (L) of the Strathroy Knights of Columbus presents member Rene VanBommel with a cheque from the proceeds of a breakfast and good will collection in aid of building a residence for a girl’s school in Uganda. Rene and his wife Maria  traveled to Uganda in September 2014 to help build the residence which will house teenage girls at St. James School so they can complete their high school education in safety. The Knights are also held a yard sale in the parking lot at All Saints Church Saturday on August 23rd. Proceeds from this sale were shared by the Uganda residence project and Helping Hands of the  St. Vincent DePaul Conference of All Saints Church, Strathroy, a group which provides free lunches for those in need in Strathroy.
