Why these Masses?
We gather once every three months to pray for the African continent. We pray for our brothers and sisters in Africa, who are subjected to extreme sufferings, who are sick, who live below poverty line and who are at war and die violently. The bible says: ?where 2 or 3 gather in my name, I will be among them.? As we have faith on God?s word and promise, we like to pray together for God?s mercy on our continent. The Mass is celebrated in English so that all may understand and attend; only the songs are in African languages in honor of our diverse background. Therefore, if you?ve been blessed in your life, remember with us those who are lost, suffering, weary and tired. Let?s pray so that they may be brought to Jesus Sacred Heart. Please let us do what our church stands for and join us so that we can be united and pray as: ONE, HOLY, CATHOLIC and APOSTOLIC church. We look forward to seeing you. May God bless you.
