As many of you know, last school year Blessed Sacrament School collected donations to be sent to St Mary's parish in Uganda. The donations were to be used to build two water containment systems to provide a source of clean water to two schools there. As it turns out, we raised enough funding to build three of them. The following are three emails sent from Father Christopher Besigye to Ruth Droughton, our 7th/8th grade religion teacher, on August 24th.
I am sending you the pictures of the third water tank. The Tank is being built. These are the first 3 pictures.

Thanks for being there for our children we are greatly honored.
Dear Ruth, Greetings!
