Dear Friends of the Mission in Tanzania,
We need your help. We are undertaking a great project, one of the most important that we can in these mission territories. We are building a house for novices who, God willing, with His grace and your prayer, will be the future missionaries in these lands. There is a great need for priests, holy priests, many priests, and missionaries. This is why we decided to begin this work. God has been blessing us with a great number of vocations, and currently there are 15 young men who are willing to become missionaries. There are even more who want to come, but they must wait because there is simply no room in the house where we are living.
Currently all of us are living together in rectory of the parish. They live in two rooms in the back on the patio. They live very simply, without electricity or drinkable water, and only one toilet. They bathe using buckets, cook with charcoal, eat outside, and sleep on mattresses on the floor. The new house is coming along nicely as they finish putting up the walls. However, there’s still a lot that needs to be done so they can live there, like finding beds, some solar panels, and more. The men will go to live there in extreme poverty, since all that’s there is the roof, doors, windows, and bare brick both inside and out.

This is the most important work of the mission right now, because from it an army of native missionaries will come forth. There are young people for this work who are very good and very enthusiastic! Without priests, the mission dies, because there won’t be Mass, the Eucharist, or confession. This is why your help, even if it’s just a little, is so important.
Our first goal is to gather 10,000 euros in order to finish the most basic things in the house and move them into it.
Many thanks in advance!
Fr. Diego Cano
