Suscipe St. Ignatius

Receive, O Lord, all my liberty. Take my memory, my
understanding, and my entire will. Whatsoever I have or possess
Thou hast bestowed upon me; I give it all back to Thee and
surrender it wholly to be governed by Thy Will. Give me love for
Thee alone along with Thy grace, and I am rich enough and ask for
nothing more.

OCJC students stock fishpond with 2,000 talapia
Students worked with Fr. Jim and a local fish hatchery to introduce 2,000 Nile talapia fingerlings into the school pond. After contracting a local fish nursery to hatch and grow Nile talapia to finger size, 2,000 talia were introduced into our three-acre fish pond Oct. 13. The pond was created several months ago by daming the headwaters of eight perenial springs flowing through our property. Two control valves and an overflow maintain the water at a desired level. This will allow the fingerlings to grow to hand-size in six months and arms length in the following years. Bring your fishing tackle the next time you visit OCJC.

The backbone for the campus sewerage system is now in place thanks to a generous donation from James O'Kane, Campion Class of '57. The entire underground system of pipes, manholes, septic tanks and three eco ponds that digest raw sewerage from the dormitory, classrom and future developments extends almost one mile along the south side of the campus. While mostly hidden from sight, it ensures that there will be no future contamination of the local water table from foul sewerage. Since OCJC is located on one of the headwater streams of the Nile River, runoff and management of sewerage is carefully managed by the Uganda Enironmental Protection rules. These have been followed carefully in designing the system by Wagner Associates, Kampala.

Solar powered street lighting is now being placed along the long 200 meter campus road connecting the girl's dorm to the upper classrooms. Since the entire campus is solar powered, the automatic switching for the light posts had to be developed locally. It is not available on local markets. But thanks to Fr. John Legge, SJ, who teaches electronics at Gulu University, Fr. Jim Strzok, SJ, was able to develop and enstall a light sensor and main solar collector for a system that will soon light the path during the night.
