Fundraising Event in Baltimore on March 23rd Towards Building of a Chrisitian Formation Center
The Baltimore organizing committee, on behalf of the Murang'a Catholic Diocese, invites you to a fundraising event towards building of a Christian Formation Center in Murang'a County. The fundraiser will take place on Saturday, March 23rd, 2013 starting at 4:00pm at 6515 Loch Raven Blvd, Baltimore, MD 21239.
The Murang'a Diocese intends to use the Christian Formation Center to address social issues in the community. The center will provide formation services to the children and youth in Murang'a County, including:
- Educating the youth to help shrink the pool of Mungiki recruits which will stunt the growth of Mungiki and eventually lead to the demise of the gangs.
- Guidance and counseling mentors to rehabilitate affected individuals and families. Currently, 25 mentors known as “Good Samaritans” have graduated and are engaged in the community to help address the drinking of illicit brews in the community.
- Growing the faith of the community to create wholesome individuals both physically and spiritually who can fully contribute to the society.
Currently, the diocese has construction underway and 23 self-contained rooms are due for completion. Outstanding is a 240 bed capacity dormitory accommodation which will be used for the above mentioned activities. This is where your input matters.
Our brothers and sisters in the parishes of Murang’a Diocese have already exhausted their donations for this project and are now appealing to their Kenyan brothers and sisters in the Diaspora and all well wishers to be a part of this project by contributing in prayers and treasure. Generous friends like you are truly making a difference. The tremendous impact of what your support can accomplish is much. It will help change the future of families and children today for a better tomorrow. In this time of great need, your kindness is essential.
Those who cannot make it to the fundraiser in person can make their contributions directly to Bank of America, A/C 446024576116. ALL DONATIONS ARE TAX DEDUCTIBLE.
