Antsiranana (aka Diego Suarez) is a city on the northern edge of Madagascar lying 1,100 kms from the country’s capital, Antanarivo, and is home to 115,000 inhabitants, while it is also the capital of the northern region of the largest island in Africa.

Since 2011, the Orthodox Mission has been active in the city, where a namesake diocesan district is based with 7 Orthodox communities in the region. Until recently there was only one church for the whole district.

That’s why our Fraternity decided to fund the construction of a new church in Diego, in order to house the piety of the Orthodox faithful, who previously congregated  in the countryside. The project for Holy Archangels Michael and Gabriel church started in late 2014, with financial help from a Greek Canadian.

The project proceeded rather quickly, despite the adverse weather conditions and the fact that everything had to be done by hand, without any machines. We hope that until Christmas everything will be completed, so that our Orthodox brothers from Diego will be able to attend the liturgy and celebrate the Nativity of the Lord there, since there’s already a priest ministering in the area. But for this to be possible, we need your help for the equipment of the church.
