In order to serve the spiritual and liturgical needs of the Orthodox faithful in Tanzania, a number of liturgical and Patristic texts are being translated into Swahili.

The Missionary Home Society, based at the Monastery of St. Dionysios in Olympus, Greece, recently announced that the most necessary liturgical texts, including the Menaion, the Octoechos, the Book of Hours, the Book of Needs, and many others are being translated into Swahili, reports the Orthodoxia News Agency.

The Missionary Home Society was founded in July 2017 with the aim of strengthening missionary work in Africa.

Several liturgical texts have already been translated, including the Divine Liturgy, the Paraklesis, the Small Compline, and the Salutations of the Theotokos.
