BISHOP PROTASE RUGAMBWA APPOINTED TO WORK IN THE VATICAN.

On Tuesday 26.06. 2012, the Diocese of Kigoma through the college of consulters who had gathered at the Bishop’s house hall received the striking news that the Holy Father Pope Benedict XVI had appointed Rt. Rev. Protase Rugambwa, the then Bishop of Kigoma as Adjunct Secretary of the Congregation of Evangilization of Peoples and President of Pontifical Missionary Works at the sametime elevating him to the dignity of Archbishop. Archbishop Rugambwa was at the same time appointed to be the Apostolic Administrator of Kigoma Diocese until when he would leave the diocese for the Vatican as his new residence. We thanked God for the grace he had showered on us through the person of Rt. Rev. Protase Rugambwa during the whole time he stayed among us as our chief pastor.
