Tanzanian Mission

We know that all things work together for good for those who love God, who are called according to His purpose. (Rom. 8:28)                                                          

The vision of the Foundress, Blessed Brigida, of setting out to distant lands to make Christ known and loved became a reality, when we dared to hoist the UMI flag in the African continent.

A long cherished dream of the African Mission was realized on 14th May 2001. Sr. Geena Vengathanam,  Sr. Alinda Jose and Sr. Sucorin Rebello were the band of brave Pioneers along with Sr. Vandana Fernandes, the then Provincial, who ventured into this mission, as they arrived in Songea, Tanzania. “Everything to be borne for God’s greater glory”, was the clarion call, they uttered with courage and determination.

Undoubtedly their faith, trust and providence in the Lord is commendable!

Divine Providence designs things and events in unexpected and inexplicable ways that baffle us, if we regard them solely from a human point of view. Marvellous indeed are the ways of God who helped and sustained  to lay a strong foundation and pave the path for the growth and expansion of the Tanzanian mission in spite of all odds.

Gratitude and love towards the benevolent Lord, overwhelms our hearts and minds who graciously brought us up to this day. Presently, it is the dedication and passion for the mission that enables the sisters to accomplish the impossible with God in the growth of the Tanzanian Mission.
