Welcome to our St. Max Twinning Ministry. It is a ministry in which our parish joins with the parish of St. Patrick’s Madera, Soroti, Uganda in an 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, all 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 wrote, “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.
