Thanks to the efforts of a missionary priest and the faith of the locals, a new parish community has opened in Tanzania.

The Metropolis of Tanzania of the Patriarchate of Alexandria reported on Monday that the first Divine Liturgy was celebrated for the Holy Trinity parish community in Niagara Caerua, Tanzania by Fr. Chrysostomos of the Church of St. Demetrios in Ibaba.

Fr. Chrysostomos also celebrated 80 Baptism and two weddings in January.

Earlier, more than 500 Tanzanians received Holy Baptism in February 2019, and another 230 in January 2020. In September, a mass wedding for the Orthodox faithful of the Maasai tribe in Tanzania was held, and in February, the first Orthodox monastery in Tanzania celebrated its first Divine Liturgy.
