Village Headman Kenani Allocates Land to St Mary’s Parish for Church Construction

By Phillip Chisi

On Sunday 27 October, 2019, Village Headman Kenani and elders under Vilangale  Traditional Area offered a piece of land for the construction of prayer center for Catholic Church.

In
his speech, the traditional leader said spiritual development of the area has
been his major concern. He appealed to the Diocese of Karonga, St Mary’s Parish
in particular, to utilize the land for the evangelization of the area which has
been isolated from religious life for many years.

During
the meeting, the traditional leader also appealed to the Diocese of Karonga to
take over the proprietorship of VIlangale Primary School.

In
his remarks, Parish Priest for St Mary’s Parish Father Joseph Sikwese assured
the community that the parish will do its best to ensure that the area is
evangelized and develop structures both at Vilangale Primary School and the
prayer centre as soon as the parish finds enough resources to do so.

Vilangale
is one of the substations in St Mary’s Parish under Ntchowo Zone and is
situated 23 kilometers away from St Mary’s Parish Center. The area is very
rocky and the road to the area is very rough making it an isolated area in many
aspects.
