Flash Flood – Cache Creek, BC: Following the tragic flash flooding in Cache Creek, BC, a few weeks ago, one of our associates, Theresa Takacs, had a very special visitation opportunity. Moved by the Facebook plea of the mayor’s wife, she volunteered to see if people needed help. She was especially concerned for the many seniors.
I am pleased to invite you to the launch of my book entitled Rebel Priest in Time of Tyrants Mission to Haiti, Ecuador and Chile, with a Foreword by Miguel d'Escoto, M.M. As a missionary, I witnessed close up the oppression and poverty in Haiti, Ecuador, and Chile where dictators and predatory imperialists ruled and I participated actively in the birth of a Church of the poor.
The launch will take place on Wednesday, June 10, at 5:30 pm at the Congrégation Notre-Dame, 2300, rue Sherbrooke Ouest (corner of Atwater). Welcome to all.
Claude Lacaille, p.m.é.
The OK Clean Water Project is most grateful to the Ottawa Catholic Schools who have supported our water project in Kumbo, Cameroon again in the school year 2014-2015. This year, twenty-five schools brought in an amazing $31,264.50! The schools were given a power point presentation including photos, commentary and statistics on the number of villages, pipes, storage tanks, schools and health clinics served by the project. The students and teachers were most creative in their fundraising engaging in such activities as walk-a-thons, read-a-thons, spirit days, coin lines, bake sales, chores at home and other interesting activities to raise money for OK Clean Water Project.
