SMALL PASTORAL PROJECTS
Early in 2020, the idea of Small Pastoral Projects came to live when our Priests raised an issue that their parishes lacked liturgical equipment and materials, especially for the newly formed parishes. As Project Office, we found it necessary to support the communities in which these parishes are in to purchase some of the items for their Priest. We agreed to contribute 50 percent of the cost of every required item by any parish while the communities contribute 50 percent. A number of Parishes within the Diocese of Arua have already benefited from this initiative by Arua Project Office.

A NEW THURIBLE
On the 12th December 2021, the Project Officer with the Project team handed over to Fr. Daniel, the Parish Priest of Lefori Sub-Parish, a brand new Thurible during an early morning Eucharistic Celebration at Lefori. The Christians were overwhelmed with joy as for the first time their new Chapel was filled with the aromatic scent of the incense ascending the air in gesture of the prayers and sacrifice of the faithful of Lefori rising up to God.
