This year our annual mission appeal will be from Fr. Tijo George’s Order, The Missionary Congregation of the Blessed Sacrament. Fr. George’s classmate and longtime friend, Fr. Boby who is a missionary in Tanzania will be speaking at our parish on behalf of the Order. The Missionary Congregation of the Blessed Sacrament (MCBS) is a religious congregation of men religious in the Catholic Church committed to the service of God and their brethren. It was founded on 7 May 1933 in Kerala, India. MCBS has extended its mission territories in different parts of India and abroad. We began our mission in Tanzania, Africa in 2009, at present we have 22 priests and 26 nuns working in this mission. We are engaged mainly in pastoral, education, health care and social work activities. We have 8 big parishes and 82 outstations, and around 65,000 people benefit from our mission work in Tanzania.
Our Focus for the 2022-2023 year:
This year our focus is to concentrate more on drinking water to expand to more villages. We also concentrate on building houses for poor and elderly people. We also provide food kits to more than 480 elderly people on monthly basis and we wish to expand the program to more people and families. Fr. Boby will be preaching at all the Masses at Our Parish on August 06 & 07, to explain the ministry and service of the Missionary Congregation of the Blessed Sacrament in Tanzania Mission.
