Construction of a Parish Hall, Cameroon

Project Leader:

Reverend Afumbom Gabriel Tokoh

St. John the Baptist Parish in the Archdiocese of Bamenda was erected in June 2015 by the Emeritus Archbishop of Bamenda, Archbishop Cornelius Fontem Esua. The Parish has just the church and the presbytery. There is no hall for other pastoral activities. The Christians saw the need of a hall and started the construction. There has been the need to remove the Blessed Sacrament from the main church to create the space for the use of the building for other pastoral activities. During rainy season it is impossible to celebrate World Day of the Poor as a community of Christ. We hope to be able to conduct a Sunday School program for children and vulnerable adults once we can secure an ample, safe structure. The crisis situation in Cameroon greatly affected us and compounded with Covid-19 pandemic. Please consider helping this project reach its goal. A gift of $25 can help buy tools and cement.
