Campaign description

Salve Maria!

Surely you have already read that verse from Exodus which says:

"Moses went up to the tent a little while away from the camp. (And he called it the tent of meeting.) Whoever wanted to consult the Lord, went to the tent of meeting outside the camp." (Exodus 33: 7)

You have no idea how very real these words are for the five Catholic communities here in Mozambique where the Heralds of the Gospel serve as missionaries!

Yes, here we have five communities of believers who still gather in a TENT to publicly profess their faith, attend Holy Mass, receive catechesis, pray for their deceased, baptize their children and raise their hymns of praise to Heaven!

In this video, you can see how our chapels are in this mission land.

As you can see in this video, they are communities that have many experiential and financial difficulties, but they do not lack the joy of the Gospel!

You must also have noticed that in celebrations in these communities, the congregation, rather than offering money at the offertory, offer bricks and cement...

Do you know why?

Because although our communities are very happy in the simplicity of a tent, we all wish to build a church, just as Solomon once built the Lord's Temple.


Although our communities are very happy and united in the midst of poverty, I, as a priest at the head of this flock of Jesus Christ, have a hard time seeing the children and the elderly come to our chapels / tents and having to endure the rigors of the seasons: the high heat of the summer; and the cold windof winter. In rainy periods, our chapels become authentic rivers ... many have to sit on the ground...

I thank God for the perseverance of these people who, despite these difficulties, continue to assiduously attend the Holy Mass. However, I confess that I dream of building a church for all them, as King David used to dream of the house of God, the Temple of the Lord.


And through the intercession of Our Lady of Fatima, our dream is already being realized gradually, with the help of thousands of benefactors from all over the world!!!

Through Our Lady of Fatima, the first benefactors of this "dream" have appeared and we have begun to raise the foundations of the Church.The church will seat 350 people and will have 4 side chapels where the Sacraments of Baptism and Confession will be celebrated. We will also have a Chapel of the Blessed Sacrament, where we earnestly desire that we may have Perpetual Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament as well as a room for catechesis, formation meetings and parish activities.

God willing, soon our communities will have a beautiful church where they can celebrate all ofthe Sacraments, pray for their dead and invoke the Lord!

"In my distress I called upon the Lord, I cried to my God: from his temple he heard my voice, and my cry reached his ears" (2 Samuel 22: 7).

This work of God will have a total cost of 4.334.568 EUR from the purchase of the land to its completion.

I, as the superior of the Heralds of the Gospel in Mozambique, will never forget all of the people who help us to fulfill our dream, so I have already begun a book, where the names of all of our benefactors will be written. In this way, from the first to the last Mass celebrated here, the names and intentions of these "angels of charity" will be continually remembered.

Help us, and may God bless you!Already a THANK YOU on behalf of each person in these communities!
