This Week’s Mission Appeal

This weekend, we would like to welcome Father Samuel Igbafe from the Missionary Society of St. Paul as our guest speaker.
The Missionary Society of St. Paul (MSP) is a congregation of priests founded in Nigeria in 1977. The Society now has 255 priests. They are working in ten countries of Africa, (South Africa, Malawi, Botswana, Cameroon, Liberia, Chad, The Gambia, Nigeria, Kenya and Southern Sudan), Grenada in the West Indies, the United States, England, Sweden and Ireland. They also have about 110 seminarians in their seminary in Nigeria. Their mission in Malawi provides rehabilitation and support for over 300 orphans who lost their parents due to AIDS. They need our financial assistance to continue this mission. They also need funds to:
1) provide fresh water wells, and education in rural communities of Chad, Malawi, South Sudan and Nigeria;
2) Sponsoring seminarians, our future priests;
3) Supporting priests in the founding/building of new churches.
Your support to this worthy cause will be an immense encouragement to the Missionary Society of St. Paul to as they continue to take the good news to those desperately in need of it.
