“Our Congregation dedicates itself to the needs of the local and universal Church and devotes itself the Parrochial ministry and other works of the Apostolate which are assumed according to the Provincial, Vicariate and the norms of the Mission.” (NT S11)

Tegeta Parish


The CPPS presence around Tegeta was necessitated by the need for a place where we could receive imported material from abroad, that is how the Procura started and then consecutively the Parish was constructed. Fr. John Piepoli was the pioneer, he first resided at Kawe Parish before buying the ground behind the Cannossian Sisters Dispensary to build the procura residence.

Later, in the eighties Fr. Domenico Altieri was asked to move from Manyoni to Dar for pastoral activities. For twenty years Fr. Domenico worked hard, not only for evangelizing the local population of the Wamakonde that lived in the area but also bought pieces of land to build stations for Christian communities in different localities, which now have developed into new Parishes: Mbezi Beach from Machakani, Mary Mother of Mercy Church from Tanki Bovu, St. Dominick Church, St. Augustine Church in Salasala, and Mtongani Parish, Bless. Isidore Bakanja Parish in Boko; Mbweni Parish; St. Andrew Parish Bhari Beach, etc. The population of the area has grown tremendously so much so that in the nearby surburb has emerged another Parish which has been named St. Peter’s Parish.



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?

(1Kor. 10:16)

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"
