A Roman Catholic Priest in Africa
Web Site This web site, you are currently browsing, was first launched on October 1, 2004. It is still under development. The purpose of the WEB site is to present Abba François' past accomplishment and recognize those individuals and groups who make various types of contributions to the welfare and development of 'Sebaat Bet Gurague'.   More details about this web site will soon be provided! I dedicate this WEB site to my uncle, Abba François Markos with great honor and sincere appreciation for his life time work. He believed that communities should always have faith, education, health, and economic development for the pursuit of happy life. The primary objectives of this web site are: •	To inform the younger generation the exemplary contributions of Abba François Markos. To recognize other similar individuals or groups of people who did and/or are still contributing to the welfare and economic development of the Gurague community. •	To establish an information source on the current development efforts being made within the Gurage community. We welcome any comment, corrections, and/or suggestions about these and other similar endeavors. Home Videogallery Biography Churches Schools Hospitals Transport Family News Administration Contact
