Dr. Ume introduces our new partnership with the University of St. Francis – Leach College of Nursing and the Ibanda Nursing School in Uganda and shares a message of solidarity and gratitude, inviting you to participate in Faith Promise 2020: Mission From A Distance. Learn more about Faith Promise 2020 and how you can participate in “Mission From a Distance.” Read our letter of invitation.
In 2019 Bruce Carlson, the mission coordinator, and Sr. Nancy Schramm, the director of mission formation, invited Dr. Ebere Ume, Dean of the nursing school of St. Francis University in Joliet, Il. and Dr. Deborah Terrell, the program director, to accompany them to Uganda with the hope that a new partnership could be established between the School of Nursing in Joliet and the Ibanda Nursing School in Uganda. The trip was successful and a mission trip was planned for October of 2020 to take the first nursing students to Uganda. Unfortunately that was not possible due to the COVID, but the future is hopeful for this new mission.
