Two Missionaries Ordained Deacons in Tanzania Province

Another happy moment for the CPPS Province of Tanzania took place on the morning of 10th July 2021, when two newly incorporated members: John Francis Kisoli and Abel William Missanga, were ordained deacons. The event took place in the Pilgrim Church for diocese of Morogoro dedicated to the Body and Blood of Christ at Kola B Parish. The ordaining Prelate was Mons Edward Mapunda of the Catholic diocese of Singida, a very close friend of our Congregation. During his homily he exhorted the two Missionaries to serve with humility which will make their ministry to be recognized as truly coming from Christ. Drawing his reflection from the first reading from the book of Jeremiah, he emphasized the fact that all vocations come from God. Despite all of our defects which make us unworthy, he said, God still entrusts his holy service to us because he purifies us when we serve him faithfully. He reminded the two ordinandi to serve the Lord assiduously but with joy, because the Gospel of the Lord is the message of joy and salvation. He pleaded with the faithful to prayer for the two young deacons for the grace of faithfulness in serving the people of God. After the holy Eucharist an abundant meal and feasting followed, chanted by the youth group and alter children.
