Very Rev. Fr. Paul

On Saturday 17th September, 2016, Very Rev. Fr. Paul Simukanzye, the Diocesan Vicar General celebrated his silver Jubilee at St. Andrew’s Parish in the heart of Mpika. The event was graced by Bishop Emeritus of Mansa, Rt. Rev. Chisha Aaron. The celebration was attended by numerous priests, Religious men and women and the Lord’s Faithful. 

Basing his homily on the Magnificat, Bishop Chisha declared that it was just to thank the Lord, like Mary for the many blessings the Lord has bestowed on the Church through the services Fr. Paul. In turn, Fr. Paul thanked the Lord for the gift of life and the many blessings he has received from the Lord during the 25 years of service in the Lord’s vineyard.

The colorful celebration was spiced up by the irresistible melodies of the Choir and Abaomba. We wish him many more fruitful years in the Lord’s Priesthood.
