SSVP extends presence in Tanzania with new Conference
On May 15, 2022, a new Conference was established in Tanzania. With this incorporation, the SSVP is present in 6 of the 7 archdioceses of that country.
The new Vincentian group is called the Epiphany Conference, since it was established in the Cathedral of the Archdiocese of Mwanza, which bears the same name.
Mapunda, Godwin and Komba, SSVP members in other archdioceses of the country, were charged with making the SSVP known at several Masses during the morning of May 15, targeting more than 60 interested parishioners, 11 of them finally made a commitment. At an information session during the afternoon, the Conference was constituted and a president elected.
This activity could be carried out because, the day before, the Vincentian delegation had scheduled a meeting with Most Reverend Leonard Nkwande, Archbishop of the Archdiocese of Mwanza. He willingly asked the Vicar General to allow us to make ourselves known in the Cathedral during the celebrations of the Holy Mass.
