Kolping Tanzania

The Kolping Society of Tanzania was established in 1989 after the then Diocesan Bishop of Bukoba, the Right Reverend Bishop Nestor Timanywa, gave his consent for its establishment. Under the persuasion and guidance of the Director of the Lay Apostolate in Bukoba Diocese, Very Rev. Msgr. David Kamugisha, twelve members in Bukoba Parish formed a Kolping Family which was formally inaugurated in June of that year.
