22 Years Ago

January 6, 1989 was a day of episcopal consecration of Rt. Rev. Bishop Justin Tetemu Samba, the late Bishop of Musoma, who received the episcopal dignity through the hands of the Servant of God, Holy Father John Paul II in Vatican Basilica. I wish to brought this important event for the history of salvation of the People of God in Musoma Diocese to ask kindly for your prayers for the repose of his soul. He died on August 23, 2006, after long and painful illness. He was the Bishop who accepted me in Diocese of Musoma and I served the People of God in the diocese since 1991 till now, 16 years under his pastoral guidance and authority, holding various posts he entrusted me along the way, including the episcopal vicar for religious and the pastor of the Cathedral Church in Musoma, not mentioning Kiabakari and the diocesan shrine of Divine Mercy here. May his soul rest in peace and may he pray for us here in Musoma Diocese, keeping alive his legacy...
