Lenten Project

This year, Our Lady of Mount Carmel’s Lenten Initiative will be directed to the Kasuku Children’s Centre in Nakawuka-Kasuku village, in the republic of Uganda. It is a non-profit organization founded by an employee of our Ottawa Catholic School Board (who worked at OLMC last year). The Kasuku Children’s Centre is a Kindergarten - Grade 3 school with an umbrella support system for young parents. It is currently the only one of its kind in the area and its programs aim to incorporate sports as a vehicle, to help bring about positive change and social cohesion in a community that desperately needs social change.

Each special event day, we ask that you send your child(ren) with a donation of at least 50 cents to support our Lenten Project. If it is easier, you may simply make one larger donation for all of the 5 scheduled spirit days in advance.
