TANZANIAN NIGHT – THANK YOU
I can’t THANK YOU enough for your generosity and support to the “Tanzanian Night 2022” event this past Saturday. It was a blessing to meet old and new friends at the event. Thank you for your love and faith in Christ. Thank you for your love of vocations to priestly and religious life. Thanks to our many volunteers from all our local parishes who contributed their time and energy in planning and executing the event. Thanks to all of you who attended the event and brought the joy of Christ. Thanks to all of you who made generous contributions of baskets for raffles and financial donations. The event raised about $10,000.00. The funds we raise up from this event will be used to improve the quality of living quarters through the construction of a new dorm and remodeling of the old dorms for our 270+ seminarians at Soni Seminary School in the Diocese of Tanga in Tanzania. On behalf of Soni Seminary School community, I THANK YOU all. God bless. Fr. Severine.
