Ongoing Education for African Clergy & Religious

Region:

Tanzania

Missioner Responsible:

Fr. John Waldrep, M.M.

The Africa Region will provide tuition assistance to Africa clergy and male and female religious at institutes of higher education or specialized training, as well as ongoing support for one seminary of an African missionary order. The studies will usually take place at colleges and universities that are located in Africa. It will be of great benefit to the Church in Africa to assist its future leaders to receive some advanced education or specialized training.

Your generosity will be of great benefit to the Church in Africa to assist its future leaders to receive advanced education.

“And what you heard from me through many witnesses entrust to faithful people who will have the ability to teach others as well.”
2 Timothy 2:2

Pastoral Ministry

Region:

Tanzania

Missioner Responsible:

Bro. Loren Beaudry, M.M.

Bro. Beaudry ministers to people suffering from mental illness. These are people who are outcast in society, and many do not have a family. Bro. Loren’s aim is to be with these people and show them love and concern by spending time with each patient as well as gathering the community to play bingo and sing songs together. These people also need a better diet so they are given fruits, vegetables and rice along with an educational program on healthy living. This project also provides for outings so they will have a chance to enjoy life outside the camp.

Pastoral Ministry also includes the Youth at Mabatini parish. This will help sponsor youth with workshops, seminars and sports events and ministering to Senior Citizens in Mabatini with educational seminars, outings and weekly bingo games.

“For those who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God.”
Romans 8:14

Region:

Tanzania

Missioner Responsible:

Fr. Hung Dinh, M.M.

Fr. Dinh’s project is to assist the local church in training and formation necessary to continue our mission to support and strengthen local church. The majority people in the Diocese depend on agriculture and keeping of animals, leaving no available funds to help support the church and the studies of major seminarians.   

The Catholic Diocese of Shinyanga was formed and cultivated by Maryknoll since 1950. Today the seeds that have been planted by Maryknoll have blossomed with 67 major seminarians (2021-2022) and 82 for this year (2022-2023). With your help, Fr. Dinh hopes to continue the education of these young men.

“We know that all things work for good for those who love God, who are called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28

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.”
