The a number of years now, The Good Shepherd SVD parish in Simanjiro, Archdiocese of Arusha, have been holding a Musical Festival involving the choirs from more than 20 substations under the parish. This festival has helped a lot create a sense of belonging among the parishioners of the vast Maasai Steppe, as well as improve a lot the singing during the worship.
This year, the celebration took place on the 17th September 2017, held at the kangala substation. The hosting outstation held also a fundraising to build a new Church since they have been worshipping in a very small mad structure.
On this day too, the parishioners of Simanjiro were graced by the presence of the Friends of SVD from Arusha parishes, who also brought their contributions for the fundraising together with other gifts including shoes and clothes for the children.
We congratulate the entire Simanjiro parish and the choir that won the competition.
Fr. Lawrence Muthee, SVD
