Fr Abel Mbogho – Anointed as Priest
“You did not choose me, but I chose you”. This was the
sentiment of Fr. Abel Leonard Mbogho OCD who was ordained to
the sacerdotal priesthood on the 30th of June 2021 at St.
Leo the Great-Makiungu Parish in the Catholic Diocese of
Singida. The priestly ordination was conferred by His Grace
the Bishop of the diocese of Singida, Most. Rev. Edward
Mapunda. He invited Fr Abel to take Christ as the perfect
model in his priestly life and by doing this he will always
remain faithful to the shepherd and His Church. Fr Abel is
the 12th ordained Discalced Carmelite priest from the soil
of Tanzania. He has been assigned the conventuality at
Malisho Community. The K.G. Province along with the
Vicariate congratulates him and wishes him every success in
his priestly ministry.
