St Barnabas in US$140 k fundraising for new parish building



KWEKWE – Roman Catholic Church St Barnabas parish in Mbizo, Kwekwe is set to host a series of fundraising events to raise US$140 000 towards the building of St Gabriel Parish in Mbizo 21 to cater for the parish’s growing number of congregants.
The project is being spearheaded by the parish’s Priest in charge, Reverend Father Porino Saga.
The project’s vice secretary for the Fundraising and Finance committee, Morris Chinwada appealed for support from all Catholics and non-Catholics in a recent interview with The Mirror.
He said they are holding a mock roora day this Sunday on St Barnabas Day celebrations. Gweru Diocese Bishop, Rudolph Nyandoro is expected to attend the commemorations and fundraising.
Chinwada added that they are targeting to raise US$6 000 in June and US$4 000 in July. The money will be used to complete the slab level of the new church building. Some initiatives set for July include a family day that will be attended by comedian Sabhuku Vharazipi.
“We are appealing to all Catholics in Zimbabwe, the diaspora and well-wishers in other churches to support us in our endeavor to build a church in Mbizo 21. We need to raise US$10 000 for the completion of the slab and part of the brick work.
“We have lined up some fundraising programs that include St Barnabas day celebrations where we will have a mock roora day and food will be sold from US$10 per family for those who want to seat on the same table with our Bishop.
“On family fun day those who want tables for exhibition may start paying, the exhibition fares range from US$30 to US$100 and those who want some skits with Sabhuku Vharazipi will pay as well,” said Chinwada.
