EVENT DETAILS

Nick Jordan
Wells of Life

 

                When you and I woke up this morning one of the first things we did was turn on the tap. Fresh water came out, many of us made coffee and thought nothing of it.

But for millions of people in Uganda, morning begins with a search for water, any water. Often it is miles away--and not really safe to drink.

That’s where Wells of Life steps in. It is a Gospel-based ministry that has drilled 300 wells that now provide safe water for rural Ugandans, and plans to drill many more.

In Uganda, an overwhelmingly Christian country, two-thirds of the rural population does not have safe water. A fifth of all children die due to contaminated water before they turn five!

On Tuesday, Nov. 14, Nick Jordan will talk about this compassionate ministry to Catholics@Work. Jordan works with Peter Callahan of St. Perpetua parish in Lafayette, the president of Wells of Life.

Jordan’s motivation reaches back to his childhood in rural Ireland, where his mother lugged heavy jugs of water to their home. Jordan later built a successful career in real estate before seeing the echo of his childhood in the plight of rural Ugandans.

The Tuesday Nov. 14 Catholics@Work program takes place at Crow Canyon Country Club, beginning at 7 a.m., preceded by Mass at 6:30. It ends at 8:15.
