Hanga Religious Seminary Graduation 2013

A 36th  graduation was held at Hanga Seminary on the 23rd of November, 2013. A total of 42 young men graduated after four years of formation in spirituality, morality and academics. The guest of honor at the event was Mr. Aloyce Kisasembe, a retired Adult Education officer of Dar es Salaam region. In his address to the graduating class he stressed the importance of abiding to the Benedictine motto of "prayer and work" as a source of progress in life. During the ceremony there was quite an exotic performance of dances and songs. The best dance, seemingly, was the traditional war dance of the Ngoni tribe commonly called "ligihu".
We wish the graduates success in whatever way of lives each one of them will choose, and we hope and pray that a few of them will continue to become monks and priests.
