We, the members of the mission team, feel that God is pulling us towards him by his love and at the same time by sending us to spread the message of love and compassion to all people. We want our parish to become a place where we can accept people, provide space for personal growth, offer safety, support and relief in the shadow of God´s presence.
We strive to achieve this goal by following these three ways:
- Creating opportunities to meet God and His Word by celebrating the Holy Mass, administering sacraments, catechesis, spiritual retreats, adorations, communal prayers, etc.
- Supporting intellectual, physical and spiritual development of children, youth and adults through various free of charge clubs in the leisure centre.
- Taking care of people who are in difficult life situations (charity).
We would like to introduce you our team:
Rev. Fr. Peter Nákačkaparish priest

How to Help
Our parish is situated in the middle of dry steppes of Western Kazakhstan, with extremely hot summers. Just like the nature needs water, we need your prayers so that God will pour His grace over our parish. Only then will it resemble a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It shall not fear when heat comes, and its leaves shall stay green. In the year of drought it is not anxious, and it does not cease to bear fruit. (see Jer 17,8) You can pray for us by saying the basic prayers that you learned or by your own words. You can also use the following short prayer by John Newman: “Lord, accompany your missionaries to countries where the gospel is to be proclaimed. Give them love for the people, put the right words in their mouths, and let their efforts bring fruit.”
Let us bear in mind that the first and the most important contribution we are called to contribute to missionary activities of the Church is a prayer.
Do you feel the desire to share your talent, creativity, potential and experience into the service of spreading the message of God´s love and compassion towards people? Would you like to come to Atyrau for a couple of weeks or more as a volunteer and join a wide range of activities as our parish offers? If your answer is yes, do not hesitate to contact us. If you speak Russian language it is much better but it’s not a must or a prerequisite.
Never think that you have nothing to offer or that nobody cares about you. Many people need you; think this! Each of you think in your heart: “Many people need me”.
Our parish works thanks to offerings. If you find out service meaningful and would like to contribute financially, contact us via e-mail. We will be happy to discuss a particular way to do so.
