Gomoza Mission of Mary Immaculate is situated in one of the poorest regions of Zimbabwe - in Lupane District. It belongs to Hwange Diocese and it is 50 years old. We took over this mission in year 2000.
People in this area survive on subsistence farming and receive the Catholic faith very slowly. Besides the standard pastoral care, we organize Bible, liturgy, and leadership courses. We also do catechesis, justice and peace workshops, and congresses for our lay faithful associations. In addition, our hall is used by Gomoza villagers to do their own community activities. We also provide accommodation for students who would otherwise have to walk a very long distance to their school.
In the mission we have two buildings important for our activities that need to be repaired - an old house and the hall. Currently the buildings are in a bad state, they have some bad cracks and the roof has got leakages.

Pray for the missionaries and their efforts. Your spiritual support is the most important one. The work of missionaries is being blessed and the hearts of people are opening for the Gospel, as you pray:
you sent your Son Jesus Christ
to the mission of redeeming the world.
Many still have not heard his message
of faith, hope, and love.
Bless the efforts of your missionaries
and let the light of your Gospel
shine in the world.
Bless the Gomoza Mission Project
so that through the missionary work
in the power of the Holy Spirit
it may bear fruit of salvation
to the people of Zimbabwe.
Encourage Gomoza Mission Project with words of faith. Missionary work is difficult and missionaries may often feel discouraged. If you believe that their effort is valuable and you appreciate what they do, you should tell them. A few honest words may help a lot.
