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.
