The diocese – a historical overview

“Through our baptism, the Word of God, and the graces of the sacraments, we have become the light of the world. We have acquired an identity and a mission: our identity is that we are the light of Jesus in the world, and our mission is to shine Jesus’ light in our families, societies, works, and wherever we live.”
“Dear brothers and sisters, let us ask the Lord to renew in us our love for the Church and for the deposit of faith that she safeguards, and to make us all mutually responsible for protecting the flock, supporting the pastors in prayer so that they may manifest the firmness and tenderness of the Divine Pastor.”
On behalf of all the clergy and the lay faithful of our Eparchy we welcome you to this website. It is meant to inform you of all happenings within our Eparchy of the Annunciation. Our presence in Africa is not just for convenience, it’s rather to bear witness to Jesus’ love in our lives and to spread our Maronite (Eastern Catholic) culture all throughout.

Let us go and show love to everyone, because our life is a precious mission. Let’s open our hearts and minds to the Lord, and let us fearlessly go forth.
