Lino came to the Archdiocese of Vancouver during the summer to raise money for students there to go to school. Special to The B.C. Catholic.
The B.C. Catholic has a story about the recent mission appeals trip of Father Martin Ochay Lino from South Sudan. He visited the Archdiocese of Vancouver over the summer, raising money for projects for his Diocese of Juba, which is the main provider of education for South Sudanese children:
Many Canadians associate education with the government, but for the youth of South Sudan, the Catholic Church is almost the only education provider.
Father Martin Ochaya Lino, from the diocese of Juba in South Sudan, made this clear during his mission appeal trip to the Archdiocese of Vancouver during the summer. The priest is raising funds to help individual students pay tuition at schools in his home diocese and to establish a rehabilitation centre for orphans affected by war and disease.
His trip was successful; Lower Mainland Catholics responded.
