The Diocese of Keren in Eritrea

Abba Mehary, a Catholic priest from Keren, Eritrea, made several long visits to our parish a few years ago and became a dear friend. His country is extremely poor and he inspired us to sponsor his fellow priests.  We are currently financially supporting 41 priests as well as 10 seminarians.  Sadly, in July 2004, Abba Mehary was killed in a tragic road accident.
