Lighano Monastery Gets New Members Formed at Hanga Abbey

St. Paul Lighano Monastery in the archdiocese of Songea is a monastery under the archbishop. This August 13 the community had a blessing of two young men becoming members of the community by making their first monastic profession. The Brothers are John Paul Tawa and Stephano Miteka. The two Brothers had part of their Novitiate formation at Hanga Abbey. Indeed the monks of Hanga are happy and proud to be able to offer such formation to them.

At the profession ceremony the local archbishop  Damian Dallu of the archdiocese of Songea officiated. Many people attended the ceremony including representatives from all religious communities in archdiocese of Songea. Thanks to the archbishop for his great support to this young community in the archdiocese; and congratulations to Bothers John Paul and Stephano and the community of Lighano Monastery.
