Education is a Fundamental Right For Everyone! It Is The Catalyst For Dignity And Independence.
The crisis in Sudan over the past several years was brought closer to the Rochester Catholic community through the spiritual intervention of Fr. John Lasuba, Associate Pastor at St. John the Evangelist Church. Having personally faced the tragedies of war in his hometown of Yei, South Sudan, he is living proof that although there is much darkness in the world, there is a God of hope and love who asks us to be witnesses in His name.
Fr. John and a number of St. John parishioners have taken this spiritual invitation seriously and have formed a nonprofit organization - Seeds of Wisdom in South Sudan. The primary purpose of this organization is to respond to the need for quality Catholic education in Yei. The goal of Seeds of Wisdom in South Sudan is to build a Catholic school campus on the 37 acres of land already donated by Fr. John’s people. Significant strides have been made over the past several months in achieving this goal. At this point, the organization is reaching out to the Catholic community with its fundraising efforts.
