Missionary Society of St. Francis De Sales, Province of East Africa was entrusted with the pastoral care of Mary Mother of Compassion Parish, mjimpya of the Archdiocese of Dar es Salaam in 2008. In ten years time, the Catholic Community in the parish grew remarkably. Being in the outskirts of Dar es Salaam city, there had been a steady growth in the number of faithful due to many new settlements. Two of its outstations are declared as the-would-be parishes, and the infrastructure developments are underway to make them fully pledged parishes soon. There are three missionary priests serving the faithful of the parish.
The missionaries are in need of a new reliable means of transport for its pastoral and social services. The repairing and maintenance costs of the present vehicle are soring high, and we need to find an alternative car.
BBM Austria will supply a suitable car at the cost of Euro 24,600. We are looking forward to raising Euro 20,000 through our networks of friends and benefactors.
