July 16, 2014 – Fr. Fortunatus from Uganda

Francesca Franchina, MS Ed talks with visiting missionary priest Fr. Fortunatus from Uganda, who attended four years of seminary in New York. He has had his first priestly assignment ministering at St. Rose of Lima Parish in Massapequa, NY on Long Island and will be in the USA for another year . Father’s Archdiocese ministers to the many orphans left behind on the streets due to the aids epidemic who they find, feed and care for until they become of age, finish school and can look out for themselves. Foster homes are found and the children are given hope, love and food to sustain them as they continue to be educated to be able to get jobs to sustain themselves, usually in farming. Francesca and Fr. Fortunatus discuss the demographic domain of the Ugandan Diocese, Villages, Eucharistic Centers, Catechists, Small Church Communities, and the outlook of Catholicism in Uganda, which is strong in family ministry, special events and ministries offered and taken up by youth and young adults. Considering the mountainous terrain in the Diocese, lack of roads, dependable transportation and even availability of water, we get a look into the life of our Brothers and Sisters in Uganda and how Our Lord provides for all His Children through caring for us all and exhorting us to compassion and helping each other. “You shall be My Witnesses” said the Lord Jesus, ” They will know you are my disciples by your love.” Father Fortunatus shares his personal story and witness of how he was drawn to his priestly vocation and how h e is sustained daily through prayer and the ability and availability he has to help others find and grown in the knowledge and love of Our Lord Jesus.
