SR HELENA MKAKA CELEBRATES GOLDEN JUBILEE IN CONSECRATED LIFE
It is well said that ‘It’s gratifying to serve God joyfully and with dedication‘. Such was a point of departure for Fr. Joseph Kimu’s homily on the occasion of 50th anniversary in consecrated life of Rev. Sr. Helena Mkaka of the congregation of Sisters of the Divine Providence on Saturday, 9th June, 2018 at St. Augustine Cathedral in the Diocese of Mangochi – Malawi. Quoting great men and women of History in the Church such as Ss. Paul the Apostle, John Paul II and Mother Teresa of Calcutta, he repeatedly compared vocational life to a book that is written each day and every moment and that the chapters being either desirable experiences worthy drawing lessons from or trash to be regretted. In vocational life, one is in search for meaning of one’s life. Thru and thru, Fr Kimu underscored three virtues of humility, faith and perseverance to be strong pillars to a well lived vocational life

DIOCESE OF MANGOCHI TO ORDAIN ONE DEACON
All is set for the diocese of Mangochi to ordain their only deacon to the order of priesthood. The diocesan celebrations committee is set to hold this important function in a marvelous way than ever before. Deacon Richard Mbando is to be ordained on 07 July 2018 at Mangochi Cathedral at a Holy Mass which will be presided over by Bishop Montfort Stima of the diocese of Mangochi.
Bishop Martin Mtumbuka has ordained twelve deacons with an appeal to them to be prayerful and obedient to their Bishops and to the Catholic Church at large.
Rt. Rev. Mtumbuka was speaking today at Zomba Cathedral during the ordination ceremony of twelve seminarians to deacons. Bishop Mtumbuka said no any deacon or priest on earth becomes successful in his pastoral work without these two fundamental values.
He said these young men are on their way to priesthood and that before long, they will achieve their dream with the help of God. However, the Karonga Diocese Bishop bemoaned a tendency by some parents who mistaken priesthood for investment. At this juncture, the Bishop said some priests fall into problems because of the various responsibilities posed on them by their parents and relatives. Rt. Rev. Mtumbuka then advised parents and guardians that when they send their children to priesthood they should do so as a sacrifice to God, instead of thinking that the priest should be their family’s breadwinner.
