Father Pascal N. Kumanda, CICM, originally hails from the Democratic Republic of the Congo. He was ordained in 2013 in San Antonio, Texas, and is a missionary of the Congregation of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. As a missionary in Africa, he dedicated himself to serving the sick, elderly, orphans, abandoned children, and vulnerable communities.
Father Kumanda has ministered in the San Antonio Archdiocese, the Raleigh Diocese, and is currently serving in Arlington. He has served as an Associate Pastor and remains involved in hospital, hospice, and social ministry. Fluent in English, Spanish, and French, his passion and love for the abandoned, suffering, and vulnerable children of God led him to join Cross Catholic Outreach, where he hopes to inspire others to bring hope and life to the poorest of the poor around the world.
