During the first semester, CMAB will be sponsoring our weekly mission collection in the community period rooms. Each student is encouraged to donate $1 to the mission collection. If each student can sacrifice ONE pop or candy bar a week, and donate that $1 to the mission collection, we can have a large impact as a school. Our 1st quarter mission collections will go to Ocer Campion Jesuit College and our 2nd quarter mission collections will go to Operation Others.
Ocer Campion Jesuit College
Ocer Campion is a Jesuit secondary school in Northern Uganda. The people of Northern Uganda are still recovering from a civil war in which 30,000 children were abducted. Fr. Tony Wach, a Jesuit who used to teach at Prep opened Ocer Campion Jesuit College to help educate future leaders in Northern Uganda to bring peace and opportunity to the region.
Operation Others is an organization made up of students from Omaha's 8 Catholic high schools. The mission of O.O. is to provide food to materially-poor families during the Christmas season and to create awareness of the problem of hunger in our city in order to encourage a preferential option for the poor.
