Project 57: Lay formation and organization material of a new parish

The bishop of the diocese of Minna in Nigeria asked a team of Missionaries of Africa (White Fathers) to take charge of the parish of St. Luke. This parish is composed of 5 sectors: St-Luc, St-Pierre Ijah, St-Pierre Azu, St-Kisito and St-Martin. Each sector has a church. The people of this parish entity are mainly farmers.

The challenge we face: the formation of different groups to take charge of the life of the Christian community and promote its vitality as well as the necessary material organization.

We focus our efforts on the formation of catechists for religious education, on the formation of Christians to foster good relations with Muslims, Protestants and people of traditional religion, on the formation of leaders to promote Justice and Peace, interreligious dialogue and respect for creation (ecology), on the formation of groups in the service of the poor, and on the human and spiritual growth of our parishioners. We need to obtain basic materials to support leaders: sound system, songbooks, liturgical books and vestments, church benches, etc.

Our desire is to put in place structures that will allow our people to take charge of themselves and be fully involved in the life of mission and first evangelization.

Your help and support would allow us to energize a community that currently lacks tools to act. We believe that the funds obtained would give a new lease of life to our parish while allowing our people to become more effective in the activities they undertake, while developing their skills.

In advance, a big thank you for everything you can bring us but, first and foremost, we count on your fraternal prayer.
