Timmins students challenged for African missions

Father Marco Bagnarol is challenging Catholic students in Timmins and throughout the Northeast district to help him raise money for missions in Mozambique, in south eastern Africa. Bagnarol, originally from Toronto, is now with the Consolata Missionaries who have been working in Mozambique since 1925 to children build better lives for themselves. The challenge is to all students of the Northeastern Catholic District School Board (NCDRB) students and teachers to take action to help raise $30,000 this year. The board says the call to assist others in need fits in with the current theme of Catholic education which reminds students “You are the Light of the World” and gives students the opportunity to experience and appreciate the value of helping others.
