Redemptorist Catechetical Centre Angola


Redemptorist Catechetical Centre Angola:

In 1971, the Redemptorists opened the Saint Paul Formation Centre near Menongue town in province of Kwando-Kubango in the South East of Angola with a focus on training Catechetical Leaders and Rural Development Workers.  The centre was forced to close in 1975 due to the civil war in Angola although the Redemptorists continued to serve the people of Menongue throughout this difficult time.

The people have implored the Redemptorist to reopen the Saint Paul Centre and to initiate again their programmes in training Catechetical Leaders and Rural Development workers.The Redemptorist’s aspiration is to complete this centre, furnish the centre, recruit qualified staff and to re-launch the centre apt to accommodate  sixty to seventy people on two year programmes, offering courses in catechetics ,evangelisation, agriculture, hygiene, public health, gender, human rights, income generation, HIV/AIDS  water, sanitation etc. It is expected that 800 people can be empowered over a five year period to become rural community development workers and activists to help transform this impoverished  part of Angola.
