First women ordained in Kondoa Diocese, Tanzania

Our companion partnership diocese of Kondoa held its annual ordination service on 10 June, at which they welcomed Bishop Brian Cole and friends from the Diocese of East Tennessee, USA.

This year was very special because four of the ordinands were women - the first women to be ordained in Kondoa Diocese and all graduates of the Diocesan Bible College.

The important contribution women have to make in the Church has been personally led by the Bishop of Kondoa, Rt Rev Given and his wife Lilian, who was the first women to be ordained in Tanzania.

Our prayers and congratulations go to all those men and women ordained on this special occasion.
