2022 Lenten Snapshots

During the 2022 Lenten season, we’ll share the work of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur from around the world. We hope you in turn will share their work with your family, friends, students and faculty. If you are interested in the Lenten Handout, please click here. Click here for the Lenten prayer card.

Lenten Snapshot #2: Clean Water is the Key to Life

In July 2021, the upgrade to the photovoltaic system at Kinsaku, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) was completed.

Kinsaku is located in the Congo Central region, about 155 miles (250 km) from the capital of Kinshasa. Our Sisters run the Kinsaku Ki-Maria Primary School there.

With the upgrade, the site now has capacity for both electricity and pumping. The next step is fabricating the ultra-filtration system, which requires 60-90 pounds per square inch of pressure now available with the increased electrical capacity.

With your support, this vision has become a reality!

Making known God’s goodness with you,

Sister Ann Fanella, SNDdeN
