Growth in the number of couples and priests “encountered” in Mwanza and in the number of those who take up team leadership roles – are measures of success.

Fr. John Eybel’s project helps to subsidize Marriage Encounter Weekends for those in Mwanza Archdiocese who cannot pay the total cost of a weekend.  This project is for couples in Mwanza Archdiocese coming from parishes and the catechetical school for couples’ weekends at several suitable centers in Mwanza. It also covers educational materials for the instructors used during the seminars.

Mission Service:

Health and Social Welfare

The number of people with Albinism is very high in Tanzania–far more than in many other Sub-Saharan African country. People with Albinism are horribly persecuted in Tanzania. Their skin is thought to have magical properties, so they are killed, dismembered and their body parts used in magic potions. Or, they are killed because people think them cursed and bearers of bad luck. Either way, they’re in an incredibly precarious situation.

Your gift will help protect these people while providing food, medical care, assistance with rent, education, and necessities such as sunblock, umbrellas, sunglasses, and hats.

The Bukundi parish has an outstation called Lukali, which has about 800 members. They have raised money for the building and have been able to do the basic structures.

They need more financial help in order to complete the building and its final touches to make the outstation suitable for holding the sacraments. Your help will make this parish a thriving one.
