bullet We thank Marina Ribar for the beautiful clock provided for our school in Magogo, Tanzania :) and for talking about the school on 2KTV. You can view it here:)


bullet On October 21, 2012 the Parish of St. Leopold Mandić was visited by a missionary, who has a big heart and soul, Maja. Maja told us about her stay in Africa, in the country of Tanzania. She shared with us very joyous news, namely, that they have built a school for the children. In that school children receive one meal a day and they are very happy with it. They do not ask for more after they eat their cup of porridge because they know that there are more children like them who can not afford even this one meal per day. The young parishioners were good hosts to Maja, singing songs and praying, and in particular with the song Look through Your Heart, which brought tears to Maja’s eyes. We are happy that we took photos with Maja and that she will bring us more warm regards from Africa, and take our regards to those in Africa. The students of the Classical Catholic Gymnasium handed in to Maja an envelope with a gift for the missions. Maja sends her regards with a smile :)
