A New Church
Kayenje’s old church was leaning considerably due to a sinking foundation. The patron saint was drawn on the wall with chalk and the walls were covered with bird excrement. It was not a very suitable place of worship. Beginning in 2005, Bright Eyes Uganda completely renovated the church. Parishioners made bricks at home, bringing them to the altar each Sunday as an offertory to help with the construction. Through generous donations and grants, Bright Eyes Uganda was able to provide new pews and other church items, along with a water tank with which to harvest rainwater.
