Help for the Formation of 61 Seminarians in Burkina Faso
The Diocese of Ouahigouya lies in northern Burkina Faso, which suffers from the ongoing attacks of radical Islamic terrorists. Due to the violence, many have fled. Still, despite great and growing risk, 61 young men have chosen to train for the priesthood here.
The people of Burkina Faso have always shown an interest in the seminarians’ development. They have prayed for them and brought them gifts, even when they had little for themselves. And whenever possible, the seminarians’ families offer them support.
But forced emigration from Burkina Faso has robbed many of their livelihoods, and they can no longer give as they once did. As a result, the seminarians have gone without essential community aid. And the area parishes are in no position to help.
ACN plans to give $33,600 in support of these brave young men, who are determined to continue their studies for the priesthood in life-threatening danger.
Will you help the devoted seminarians of Burkina Faso? We are sure they will remember you in their prayers.
