We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our friends abroad for their con-nuing support to our Community in health, educa-on, finance and spirituality. I men-on a few of our donors, but this is not a complete list:

We thank God for His love and care to us throughout this year that we have been able to celebrate 75 years of our Community. We give glory to God. The Celebrations took place on 8th September, 2022 at Masasi.

Autumn 2021


On 8th September, the annual Patronal Day of the Community, CMM had planned a big celebration for their 75th anniversary. Sadly, the festivities had to be postponed because of the increasing prevalence of Covid 19 in Tanzania.

This year I visited the country again, for a month during September and October visiting eight of the Sisters’ Houses, going as far as Liuli at Lake Nyassa. The Sisters and all our friends in the Diocese of Masasi are well and enjoying life in their usual way, content with the little they have.

Dear Friends,


We greet you in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” John 3:16. We thank God that we started well except some of the Sisters were unwell, and it is good that they are now all doing well after having treatment.
