Holy Angels College Construction of the New Science Lab

Holy Angels College is a school 250 students  from grades from 7-11 that that did not have adequate science space to meet the Uganda requirements.  The school is less expensive than Uganda schools and 50% of the students are Catechist children.  St. Max contributions have completed the shell of the building that includes separate rooms for Chemistry, Physics and Biology.  To complete construction we are asking for your support totaling $16,500 for inside and outside plaster, Solar lighting and interior ceiling.

Twinning (St. Patricks Uganda)

Welcome to the new St. Max Twinning Ministry. It is a ministry in which our parish joins with the parish of St. Patrick’s Madera, Soroti, Uganda in this active and on-going faith commitment.

The purpose of this ministry is to bind our parishes together spiritually, culturally and in a mutual sharing of available resources, in Jesus’ name.  It involves each of us crossing over into the other cultural, economic, political, linguistic and religious environments.

 Why Twin? “Love your neighbor as yourself.” St. Pope John Paul II has written, “Sacred Scripture continually speaks to us of active commitment to our neighbor and demands of us a shared responsibility for all of humanity. This duty is not limited to one’s own family, nation, state, but extends progressively to all… (Centesimus Annus CA, no.51)

Each of us are universal church members of God’s family. We will grow and share our faith journeys together with Our Lord by learning from each others spiritualties, service and worship styles and economic and cultural differences. We will develop unity and solidarity with the people of St. Patrick’s Church Madera, Soroti, Uganda parish.

Writing Letters

Welcome to St. Max Twinning FAMILY CONNECTIONS! Family Connections is a vital part of the Twinning Ministry. St. Max parishioners have selected one of the catechists and their family from over the 160 catechists of St. Patrick's in Soroti, Uganda. With quarterly letters, we are learning about each other and supporting one another as we build up the Body of Christ across oceans and continents. 

The Twinning Ministry believes that many fruits will come to bear as this correspondence continues. Already we have had examples of this: one catechist has named his newborn son after their St. Max pen pal. And we recently learned of the passing of one of the catechists which we now mourn.

If you are interested in corresponding with a catechist from St. Patrick's, please email
