The evening started with a meet and greet in the reception hall at the Cathedral in Bloomfield Connecticut.
Rev Tom Furrer, Bishop Markus Dogo, Nana Dogo, the Kateri Board Members, and past volunteers took great care to welcome everyone.
Thank you George Sailor for taking some group photos!
The Kateri Benefit Dinner only happens every three years. In 2016 we had 175+ people in attendance who reached deep into their hearts and wallets.
It would be a shame to miss this musical performance of the Tapestry Singers of Connecticut at the Kateri Med Benefit Dinner.
Leaving a legacy is an important part of any life. A legacy reflects a life lived with purpose.
What does it mean to leave a legacy? It means putting a stamp on the future, and making a contribution to future generations. People want to leave a legacy because they want to feel that their life mattered.
We met Bishop Markus in 2016 at Jakaranda retreat center where he was one of the speakers during a clergy conference for the diocese of Kaduna. During this time we had extensive discussions with him about how we might develop a partnership.
Kateri Medical Services are getting ready to host our BENEFIT DINNER fundraiser again in 2019.
Please SAVE THE DATE on Saturday, October 19 from 5:00pm - 8:30pm for this amazing event to meet our parners and those wonderful people helping to make this mission possible.
The dinner will be at the First Cathedral located at 1151 Blue Hills Ave in Bloomfield CT.
We are honored to have Bishop Markus Dogo and his wife Mrs. Nana Dogo as our keynote speakers to share with us first hand the impact our work has on their community.

Most Anglican Churches in northern Nigeria have at least three singing groups ( 1. traditional choir singing traditional Western style hymns, 2. praise band with guitars, drums, horns and keyboards singing praise songs familiar to American evangelical and pentecostal churches and 3. Women's Choir, singing in the local language with traditional African drums ). The services are exuberant, joyful, emotional, loud and long ( never less than 3 hours). And never boring.
