Cross Border Evangelization (Nyangatom) Ethiopia

Project Leader:

Reverend Angel Valdivia

This project is a first evangelization initiative of the Diocese of Lodwar in collaboration with neighboring Apostolic Vicariate of Jimma-Bonga to reach out to pastoralist societies of the southern part of the Vicariate of Jimma-Bonga (Ethiopia) bordering Kenya and South Sudan. Due to its remoteness, difficult accessibility and insecurity, the Catholic Church has never been able to establish herself in this area. The project consists in supporting priests of the Missionary Community of Saint Paul the Apostle and other pastoral agents to start pastoral attention and evangelization of this area and build up the Church. This will be done through the formation of catechists, registration and training of catechumens, formation of Christian leaders and formation of Small Christian Communities, all this with a strong stress on bringing about peace with the neighboring tribes who compete for the few resources such as pasture and water.

Hello friend, Thank you so much for your donation! I hope that you are keeping safe from Coronavirus. As for us here in Ethiopia, we are seeing now a high increase of the cases, because the government has increased its testing capacity. However, in our remote location is more difficult that we get any case. Your donation will help us to continue spreading the kingdom of God in this corner of Africa. The mission is in the bush, close to the border with Kenya and South Sudan. We have a group of about 500 South Sudanese refugees living by the mission, since they are using our water and we are giving them medical treatment. In addition we attend to their spiritual needs through celebrating the Sunday mass with them and teaching catechesis to those who want to become catholics. In the mission, we have a team of two priests, and 5 catechists. We normally have formation meetings for our catechists 3 times a week and we are translating the catechism and some liturgical books for our use with the people. May God bless you abundantly and take care of you, especially during this difficult time. Fr. Angel Valdivia MCSPA
