A Pilgrimage of Remembrance

We come together from our different missions for our annual meeting (left) and on the right the pilgrimage of remembrance.

This year we made a pilgrimage to Victoria, to the place where our Founder Bishop Joseph Shanahan came ashore on his first visit to Cameroon. At the outbreak of the first World War the missionary priests, who were German, had been expelled from Cameroon. Bishop Shanahan was asked by Rome to visit the mission. He found the Faith was alive, kept so by the catechists, and administered the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and Marriage in Bota, Bongomgo and Sasse:  The registers are there, signed in his own hand. When he found the people so full of faith he went back to Nigeria to plan another visit, which he made in 1918. This year, 2016, is the 60th anniversary of our Region of Cameroon.

The Treasure Centre, Bamenda

 

T Centre f 2016 T Centre d 2016
A safe, happy and healthy environment where children and young adults with intellectual disabilities can learn and develop socially, emotionally and spiritually, while acquiring the skills to function as far as possible in society.
The Treasure Centre is like a treasure hidden in a field which is often neglected, like these children. When they are given time and a lot of patience you discover that they are indeed treasures, with a lot of hidden potential and gifts which are often neglected.
The Centre has 152 registered children, 104 boys and 48 girls, from all over Bamenda area. The staff include Sisters Kathleen O’Brien and Antonia Onah, both Holy Rosary Sisters, and Mrs Song Lawrentia and Madam Theresia Lukong, all trained in Special Needs and Child Protection. We work in close collaboration with the Government and Welfare Department.

“Cry-Die
A memorial Mass for Sr Anna Woods was organised by the MSHR Associate Members at St Martin de Porres Catholic Church at Ndu, where she spent so many years of her missionary life. Pictures show the people and sisters who were present for the Mass and the food prepared for the celebration.

Ndu: Water and Trees
Every year in Ndu water was getting scarcer and scarcer, making life more difficult for people who depend on growing crops for their livelihood. When surveys proved beyond doubt that the water resources where being destroyed by the Eucalyptus Trees growing in the water catchment areas, it became necessary to replace the eucalyptus with a local variety to tree. 60,000 eucalyptus had to be uprooted, and 15,000 Prunus africanus planted in their place. This huge task involved community participation, government approval, training of leaders, education of families through the children, and sheer hard work. Now seven years on a good water supply is being enjoyed by the people.
