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.

Dear Team Missio, once again receive greetings from St John the Baptist Parish Foncha Street. I wish to bring to you updates of our Parish and to continue to plead with you for assistance for its completion. The Christian community is doing its best to push the project forward. At the moment, we are plastering the hall and putting the ceiling. Our hands are really tight now. At this level, we need cement, concrete, sand, plank and nails. We also need to put the doors. Your contribution no matter how small will greatly help us to complete the hall. At the moment we try to make use of it. We no longer remove the Blessed sacrament from the Church like the case before. Please your little contribution will help us complete this project so that our children can have space for Sunday school, we can have space for other parochial activities. Please Team Missio assist us. $150 will help purchase bags of cement; $500 will help purchase concrete; $250 will help purchase trips of sand; $50 will help purchase frames for the doors; $25 will help purchase pieces of plank.

Dear Vinny, sincere thanks for your generous contribution which will go a long way to push the work till the end. May God continue to bless and reward you. The young people in the parish are also putting in their best for us to have a befitting hall. They come out on Mondays to carry soil into the hall and level the floor of the Hall. We still have a long way to go. 1). We still have doors and windows to be fitted; 2). Plastering of the walls; 3). Toilets to be fitted; 4). Electrical work to done. We still rely so much on Team Missio for its completion. God bless you all.
