THREE LUTHERAN PARISHES INAUGURATED
Bishop Dr Abednego Keshomshahara inaugurated three new parishes in the NWD. The Kyelima parish which is located in the Kaskazini A church district was inaugurated on 12th June, the Runazi parish in Kusini B church district on 17th July and the Lwangono Lutheran parish on 31st July, 2022.
The task force of the executive council visited these areas several times to make sure that they comply with twelve criterion, which qualifies any mission area to be a Lutheran parish. The three parishes were declared interim parishes, they were allocated ordained pastors and they continued to complete those criterions for two years time.
The bishop congratulated the leaders and church members for complying with existing criteria and commended them to support their new parishes sustainably. The general secretary clarified management and legal issues for optimizing parish operations.
The NWD is grateful for such a blessing and an indicator for church growth. Let us pray for the new parishes so that they may perform better.
