Mission Appeal:

We are a Missionary Community based in Tanzania, but our members do missions in and outside the country, including the USA. We are blessed to have a good number of young men who feel to be called by God to serve God and the Church as priests.
As a young Missionary Community, we have many needs. At present, we face the challenge of meeting the costs of Tuition fees for our 75 major seminarians who are now in formation for both Philosophical and Theological Studies at Jordan University in Morogoro – Tanzania.
These seminarians appear to be excited and passionate about their vocation journey. They feel they are called by name and they desire to give their lives to what they discerned as the highest noble cause. They are eager to grow in spiritual maturity and become holy men and be missionaries of Jesus.
It is very important to have as many priests as the Lord provides in order to serve both the local needs and the needs of the Mission Church outside Tanzania. The Community/Society responds to the call of Christ and the mission of the Apostles. The call has no fixed time and place but is for all the times and all places. ‘Go, therefore, make disciples of all nations; baptize them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit (Mt.28:19-20)
Any assistance from MCP will be so helpful in supporting the formation of these young men who will soon move into the priesthood.
