Social Hall at Transfiguration Parish
Fr. John Eybel’s project includes the construction of a social hall adjacent to the Transfiguration Parish church and rectory in Mabatini, Mwanza. The Social Hall will allow for large groups to meet, e.g. 500 youths, and for potential parish income from wedding receptions and other major social functions.
With your help, the re-acquired property will serve the social needs of Transfiguration parishioners offering potential space for education, meetings, receptions, recreation and Sisters’ housing.

Clinical Pastoral Education at Bugando Medical Center Subsidy, Tanzania
With your help, we will subsidize school fees for the Clinical Pastoral Education Program (CPE) at Bugando Medical Center (BMC) in Mwanza.
Maryknoll priest Fr. John Eybel. M.M., supervises students in the program two days each week while living at Mabatini Parish in Mwanza Archdiocese. His education project is not self-sustaining but is paid for by student fees and contributions from the hospital and from the Tanzania Episcopal Conference. Most participants are seminarians currently coming from Musoma and Mwanza.

“As we reach out in compassion and solidarity with the poor, let us keep in mind that we’re not making God present but rather witnessing God already present.”
