Bamenda Archbishop

Catholic Christians in the Arcdiocese of Bamenda have made contributions to support the displaced and suffering population Mamfe. The collection which ran from Sunday January 28 to February 4 followed a circular letter from the Archbishop of Bamenda, His Grace Cornelius Fontem Essua appealing “for a collection to support the displaced population of the Diocese of Mamfe.
The January 19 circular letter addressed to all Monsignors, all Reverend Fathers, all members of Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies and all members of the lay Faithful justified the collection on the current crisis facing the North West and South Regions.
“I write to appeal to all Christians of our Archdiocese and people of goodwill to make a special collection in all the churches of the Archdiocese of Bamenda on Sunday the 28th of January 2018, to support the displaced and suffering people of Mamfe because of the violence and conflict which is, at the moment, taking place there on account of the socio-political crisis.” The Archbishop writes.
Inviting all to show compassion towards fellow brothers and sisters “whose homes and property have been destroyed as a sign of solidarity with the people of Mamfe”, the Archbishop called on the Christians not to relent in “prayers for all those who have been victims of this situation and for a peaceful solution to this problem.”
“I was very happy in Church today during offertory when that announcement was made. It is time the Church moves away from talking to acting. I feel really happy that the church thought of this and pray that the contributions will get to the displaced and those suffering at the time it can be of help to then.” Pius Funwie told me after mass in Futru-Nkwen.
The general church contributions come at the time contributing for similar intentions have become a regular occurrence in Bamenda. At the St Maria Soledad Catholic Hospital in Alakuma Mankon recently made appeals for visitors in the hospital to freely make contributions to assist a mother of twin who is reported to have lost all her property in a house that got burnt in in the Manyu Division as a result of the ongoing crisis.
