Thanks to your selfless giving, students will get the exciting opportunity to play sports and enjoy building new friendships on a brand-new soccer field with new sports equipment! Donations to Catholic Mission Outreach helped fund this new addition. Catholic Mission Outreach is the international outreach arm of the Archdiocese of Atlanta, funded through second collections from the parishes. CMO ties the support of the parishioners of the Archdiocese to this excellent work of the local church to help support the international/worldwide work of the Archdiocese. 

The school located on the grounds of the Pope Francis School and Health Centre in Ghana is named for the Archdiocese of Atlanta’s Bishop Konzen.

The Pope Francis School and Health Centre works to provide consistent health care, education, and food to HIV orphans and vulnerable children as well as local families throughout the Volta region. Your generous contributions provided the Bishop Konzen Catholic School with an active physical education area and sports equipment.

“We would like to thank Catholic Mission Outreach for the sporting equipment…and their time and effort. God bless you all!”

—Benedicta, Student.

The school looks forward to hosting hundreds of students through inter-school and community soccer tournaments. They also are thrilled to encourage exercise, teamwork, and friendship among students with games including soccer, volleyball, basketball, table tennis, and more.

“Our hearts are full of joy…we thank you for this ground and we thank you for this field…and we thank our sponsors who have provided the sporting activities and equipment for us. We ask that anytime we use this, we may be in good health and strength”

—Rev. Fr. Kizito

The Pope Francis School and Health Centre students and faculty are abundantly grateful for this exciting new addition to the Bishop Konzen Catholic School.
