Lusaka, 07 September, 2022 / 9:00 pm (ACI Africa).
On September 3, the new Holy Trinity Cathedral of the Catholic Diocese of Monze in Zambia was opened, bringing to life the dream that was dear to Bishop Moses Hamungole who succumbed to COVID-19 complications in January last year aged 53.
In a Monday, September 5 report, the Catholic Pontifical and charity foundation, Aid to the Church in Need (ACN) International, described the late Zambian Bishop who initiated the idea to construct the Cathedral as the Biblical Moses who could not see the finished place of worship.
The charity’s sentiments were echoed by the Diocese of Monze, lauding the late Bishop Hamungole for his undying desire to care for the Diocese’s expansive population.
“Like Moses in the Bible, Bishop Moses Hamungole’s dream for Monze Diocese has been realized in his death. The late Bishop set out to build the new Holy Trinity Cathedral whose foundation stone he took to Rome for Pope Francis to bless in 2017,” a September 2 report from the Catholic Diocese of Monze indicates.
According to the Zambian Diocese, it was Bishop Hamungole who wished that the Cathedral comes to fruition at the Diamond Jubilee (60) of Monze Diocese “as a feasible sign of the growth of faith in Monze”.
