The Well Project

The first request Pierre-Louis made to the parishioners of Christ Our Light Parish was for help to dig a well. If there was to be a school, a closer water supply was going to be needed. The parishioners agreed to help dig a well.


The first attempt, however, failed. The drill initially used was the wrong one to do the job. The second attempt was successful. The parishioners were so delighted by the benefit this new well brought, not just in the building of the school but to the whole community, it was motivated to move on to the second task at hand, the building of the school.

Today, the well is a place of gathering for many and has become a symbol of life.
