January Appeal

“If only 7 percent of the 2 billion Christians in the world would care for a single orphan, . . . we would be amazed by just how much we could change the world.”

Happy New Year! I pray that your holidays were filled with joy, peace, and a chance to be surrounded by the loving presence of family and friends. As I write these words to you, I am thinking that others have probably said or written the same thing to you recently. It’s funny: when we talk about the holidays, few adults ever say: “So tell me how many great gifts you got during the holidays.” Instead, we focus on the importance of family. We realize that the most important thing in life is the love we share with one another -- love that comes from family and friends.

November Appeal

By now, you’ve probably already begun thinking about what presents you want to buy. In the process, though, you know -- and friends will even tell you -- that Christmas is about much more than buying gifts. But the truth is that deep in our heart each of us receives an incredible amount of joy in giving; even the angels sang for joy on that first Christmas as God gave the gift of his Son!

October Appeal

I recently received a letter from Fr. Emmanuel Mambwe, a Missionary of Africa priest who lives and works in Serenje, Zambia, in southern Africa. There, he's working to not only help provide better lives for some of the more than 13,000 people in his parish, but also a better future for their children as well.

“Each year, more than 1,000 acres of trees are being destroyed in Zambia - deforested,” Fr. Emmanuel wrote. “For the most part, trees are being cut down and burned by those who want to create charcoal which they then sell. But there is no reclamation or 'reforestation' occurring."

“Trees are important to the water cycle,” Fr. Emmanuel explained. “They absorb rain fall and produce water vapor that is released into the atmosphere. Trees also lessen the pollution in water by stopping polluted runoff. Without trees, the already tenuous water supply in many of our communities will become even more endangered. That is why the people of Serenje need help!”

AFRICA, A Natural Treasure

Africa is a land of incredible beauty, natural treasure and unparalleled discovery! Its people - of nearly 60 nations throughout the Continent - are among some of the most diverse cultures and societies in all the world! But in the midst of this land of rich heritage and facsinating beauty - the lives of African people are being torn apart by war, poverty, hunger, disease and oftentimes despair . . .

Our Mission: Preach, Teach, Heal and Build

For more than 130 years, the Missionaries of Africa - a Catholic society of religious men - have been reaching out to men, women and children throughout Africa to preach, teach, heal, and build. Your support will help our missionaries continue their life saving work among those suffering from the tragedy that has gripped the people of this vast continent!

We invite you to learn more about our mission, our immense and ever-growing accomplishments, and the tragic challenges that torment the peoples of this great continent.
