Raffle for Cameroon Fundraiser: Sunday, 4 June

Our fundraising efforts (Sunday's sale and the raffle) are to help complete the works at the Catholic church of St Therese Esu, Cameroon. See attached photos of the work to date.

  • In October 1998, the Catholic church in Esu (Cameroon) was elevated to the status of a full parish – St Therese Parish.

  • Parishioners raised funds and built the parish house (residence and office of the parish priest, religious workers etc.) and a primary school.

  • In 2000, the foundation stone for a new church building was laid and construction work effectively started in 2001.

  • According to 2022 statistics, the parish counts slightly more than 3,000 parishioners.

  • Altogether, there are 14 Mission stations that make up St Therese's parish.

  • The parish is currently served by two priests and a seminarian on his pastoral year.

  • The current fundraising drive is to raise CHF30’000 to put tiles on the floor and to purchase additional pews.
