Currently, we have foundations in five diocese: 1) Bunda; 2) Dar Es Salaam; 3) Mbeya; 4) Morogoro; and 5) Songea. Within these foundations we serve seven parishes along with their respective outstations, operate two schools and two vocational training facilities for women, and manage two infirmaries. Additionally, we run a house of formation for postulants and another for major seminarians who are studying philosophy and theology.
