Kisasa Provincial Headquarters

Mission House in Kisasa


As years passed by, there came a need for Tanzania to have a Provincial delegate whose duty apart from reporting and guiding the mission was to represent the Mission to the Assemblies of the Province, hence Tanzania was elevated into a delegation. Missionary delegates included; Fr. Francis Bartoloni (the first Delegate), then Fr. Dino Gioia and the last was Fr. Antonio (Tonino) Calabrese. The Delegation had no Headquarters.

The Delegation Headquarters, St. Gaspar College became the First Vicariate Headquarters. But in view of time and in order to set Headquarters away from the centre of candidate’s formation, Kisasa in Dodoma was chosen to host Vicariate Headquarters. Early 2000 construction began supervised by Frs. Vincent Boselli and Chesco Msaga - while staying at St. Gaspar College in Morogoro and at Ven. Merlini Formation House, Miyuji in Dodoma respectively.

Tanzania was raised to a Vicariate in 1998 and Fr. Tonino Calabrese became the first Vicariate Director (1998-2002), followed by Fr. Vincent Boselli (2002-2006), Fr. Joachim Ndelianaruwa (2006-2010) then 2010-2015 Fr. Reginald Mrosso until the innauguaration of the Province in 2015. The first Provincial Director was Fr. Chesco Msaga (2015-2019). The current Procincial Director is Fr. Vedasto Ngowi.



Blessed are you, Virgin Mother! Your Son, Christ Jesus, spotless lamb has prepared for his spouse, the Church, the new bread and wine of the wedding banquet

Umebarikiwa, ee Mama na Bikira; Mwanao Yesu Kristo, Mwanakondoo asiye na doa, alilitayarishia Kanisa, mchumba wake, mkate na divai mpya ya karamu ya arusi

The cup of blessing that we bless is communion with the Blood of Christ. The bread that we break is communion with the body of Christ

(1Cor. 10:16)

Kikombe kile cha baraka tukibarikicho, je, si ushirika wa damu ya Kristo? Mkate ule tuumegao, Je, si ushirika wa mwili wa Kristo?

Message From St. Gaspar

“I would rather die or suffer evil than to take such an oath. I cannot, I must not, I will not!” St. Gaspar spent five years in jail for refusing to take the oath"
