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 the BVM we were also 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 and all went out in procession with the statue to the Grotto. The Grotto was blessed by Fr. Roshan and the statue was placed inside the Grotto. The work of the Grotto was started on 21st July after blessing the site by Fr. Roshan after the morning mass of the day. We are grateful to all those who helped us financially to realize this project of building this Grotto of Our Lady of Mount Carmel. May God bless all those who helped us. It is said by our own faithful that this is a very unique kind of Grotto, nowhere to be seen in Tanzania itself.
