D.R. Congo – A new Salesian presence has begun in Mbuji-Mayi: the Mary Help of Christians Community, Tshikama

05 June 2023

Mbuji-Mayi, D.R. Congo – May 2023 – Since 5 May three Salesians, Fr Mario Pérez, Fr Marcel Tshebwe and Fr Jean-Claude Mukendi, have separated from the Muetu Don Bosco community to begin the second Salesian presence in the diocese of Mbuji-Mayi. In this first phase the three Salesians live in a rented house not far from the concession belonging to the Salesians. This is to allow them to be close to the young people at the OUA and Katayi Mukishi Salesian Schools, enable them to understand how things are so they can develop the Pastoral Plan, and to supervise construction work at the new Salesian presence. The official beginning of the mission took place on 24 May  with the celebration of the Solemnity of Mary Help of Christians. With the approval of the Superior of the Africa Congo Congo Vice-Province the new community was called Mary Help of Christians Tshikama.
