For 8 months since the blessing and groundbreaking by the His Lordship Bishop Prosper Lyimo, auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of Arusha, Epiphany SVD parish in Burka Arusha have commenced the construction of the Parish House. Since the coming of the SVD in Arusha, the confreres working here have been staying in a house that used to house the first bishop of Arusha.
However, due to the proposed expansion of the Dodoma Road along which the house is Located, the house has been marked for demolitions because according to the city plan, half of the building is sitting on the road reserve area.
The parish through the Parish Council have decided to use the little funds available from the collections to begin the foundation before they call for fundraising.
We wish the entire Burka community blessings and successful completion of the project.
Fr. Lawrence Muthee, SVD
