Madeleine Fuselier, an alumni of St. Mary Catholic School and presently a junior at Kelly High school, presented a service project to St. Mary Catholic School students and staff. Fuselier is organizing to collect uniforms, shoes, and funds for Catholic schools in Cameron (West Africa). She is focusing first on an elementary school that will soon be built in the village of Nkar. Fuselier’s family befriended a priest named Father Eugen Nkarzedze a few years ago when he visited Saint Mary Catholic Church.

Father Eugen says that building the new school in Nkar is an “immediate way of showing the radical Islamic group that we are not giving up on Western and Christian education.” Offering children a chance to receive a Catholic education helps spread peace and love in the world, as opposed to hatred and violence.
