Lusaka, 06 July, 2020 / 10:00 pm (ACI Africa).
The people of God in the Catholic Diocese of Monze in Zambia received a boost in the plans to put up a new Cathedral when, on Saturday, July 4, the Government handed over a five-hectare piece of land to the Local Ordinary, Bishop Moses Hamungole.
“This piece of land will be used for the construction of the new Holy Trinity Cathedral in our Diocese with a sitting capacity of 1,000 people,” Bishop Hamungole said at the July 4 event and thanked the Government of Zambia for the gesture of collaboration.
The new Cathedral project aims at responding to the growing needs of the community of Monze where “we have observed that as the local population increases, the number of vulnerable persons also grows,” Bishop Hamungole explained.
“Our dream is to complete the cathedral project by the year 2022, when the Diocese of Monze will be celebrating its diamond jubilee. We count on your support and prayers,” Bishop Hamungole said and implored.
He invited “all people of goodwill to contribute generously for the realization of this project.”
