Father Adolf Cookbook Fundraiser for Healthcare Clinic

The Father Adolf Health Clinic Committee in our parish is preparing to publish a cookbook as a fundraiser for our 2019 goal.  You are invited to submit 5-6 of your favorite recipes so you can be represented in our cookbook.

Father Adolf Busobozi is a Roman Catholic priest and a native of Uganda. He came to western Massachusetts in January 2005. Father studied at Elms College and graduated in 2011 with an MA Theology, focusing in ecumenical/interreligious studies.

During the course of Father's studies, Springfield’s Bishop asked him to serve as chaplain at Baystate Medical Center, which he did beginning in 2008 until his return home. Father Adolf also assisted Father Murphy here at St. Mary's for six years with weekend mass and vacation coverage.

To learn more, and contribute your recipes, please visit our cookbook page, download the recipe form, fill it out and email it to us. Directions are on the page.
