Catholic grouping of Young Christian Workers (YCW) in Malawi has called on people of good will to join the fundraising activity to support St. Peter’s Major Seminary in Zomba which is in deep financial crisis.
Augustine Mulomole the president for the movement, said the group has learnt with concern that St. Peter’s Major Seminary is in deep financial crisis, requiring over K8 Million by July 2016 to finish the current academic calendar.
“As YCW, we have made a commitment to raise up to K500 thousand as our contribution to the seminary,” said Mulomole
“Financial contributions are greatly encouraged and can be made through Airtel Money and TNM Mpamba using the following numbers: 0997 541 127 or 0882 474 641.” urged Mulomole who encouraged all people of good will to support the Seminary
“St. Peter’s is the University for young men aspiring to become priests and most YCW members, specifically boys, are at a stage of deciding to choose a vocation and priesthood is one such vocation. Even girls need priests too, so, if the seminary closes shop, then it will be difficult and very expensive for the Catholic Church in Malawi to train future priests” he explained
Since most well wishers have committed to honour their pledges by the end of the month of June, Mulomole said YCW will be receiving the donations up to the end of this month of June and during the same period, it is set to consolidate all the donations and submit them to St. Peter’s.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
