Sister Victoria Zimba has concluded her contract with the Diocese of Karonga. She says she is very grateful to Bishop Mtumbuka, Staff and Management of Karonga Diocese and all faithful for allowing her to work in the Diocese and for granting her wonderful support as she was executing her roles as a Diocesan Lay Apostolate Coordinator. Sister Zimba said these words on 6th August at Karonga Diocese Offices during a farewell reception organised for her by the Diocese.
Sister Victoria Zimba joined the Diocese’s Curia offices in 2014, becoming the very first coordinator of lay movements in the young Diocese of Karonga. The major achievement of Sister Zimba was the kick starting of the functions of the office and to provide proper direction and coordination to lay groups in the Diocese.
Representing the Bishop at the function, Fr Denis Chitete, the Vicar General of the Diocese of Karonga, extended the Diocese’s words of thanks for the service that Sister Zimba rendered to the Diocese of Karonga. He said the Diocese enjoyed the benefit of having a religious sister serving among staff members at the Curia; the secretariat of the Diocese. He further highlighted that Sister Zimba has provided services which will be remembered down in history of the Diocese.
With the leaving of Sister Zimba, the Bishop has appointed Mr Grego Lusale to provide coordination of the Lay Apostolic Office.
