The Feast of the Assumption of the BVM was celebrated on 13th of August at St. Martin of Tours, Mpandagindo-Songea. On that great day of the feast of Our Mother Mpandagindo Community was privileged to bless the Grotto of Our Lady of Mount Carmel. The mass was celebrated by Fr. Roshan Pinto, the Parish Priest and concelebrated by Fr. Raymond Santhanaz and a beautiful homily was delivered by Br. Cyprian Kiwele, the Scholastic from Kola who has come for Pastoral experience. After the mass the statue of Our Lady of Mount Carmel was blessed by Fr. Raymond. The Grotto was blessed by Fr. Roshan and the statue was erected inside the Grotto. We are grateful to all those who helped us financially to realize this project of building this Grotto of Our Lady of Mount Carmel.
