In 2002, Fr. Emmanuel led a group of Christians from St. Michael’s parish (located in Cary, North Carolina) on a pilgrimage to Uganda. During the pilgrimage they were, among other things, confronted with the need for clean water and education that so many faced. Out of that pilgrimage and the ensuing restlessness, Share the Blessings, Inc. was born. Founded in 2003, Share the Blessings is dedicated to the provision of clean water to rural communities and educational support to needy children in Uganda. Through Share the Blessings, friends, and church communities, Fr. Emmanuel is committed to providing clean water to at least two communities every year.
