The Advent Bookstore will soon be selling beautiful soapstone eggs from the Mother’s Union in Rwanda for $50. Your purchase of one egg provides an actual egg a day for two children in a preschool run by the Shyira Diocese of Rwanda.
There are currently 26 preschools run by parishes within the diocese offering this unique program through the One Egg project. An egg provides the optimal amount of protein for a young child, enabling proper brain development. In addition, it serves as an incentive for parents to send their children to the church’s preschool program, where they will be exposed to the Gospel.
The Advent hopes to provide funding for two preschools with 100 students each. For more information, contact Bethany Rushing, Director of Mission and Outreach (Bethany@CathedralAdvent.com, 226-3512).
