St. Petro's Small Community

Fr. Jim Donohue.
Early on Saturday morning, seminarians Bryan and Gervas walked with me to celebrate Mass at the small Christian community of St. Petro.

Although it was early…a bit too early for me…I had to admire the beauty and stillness of the morning as we walked.

There were about 40-50 people present for the celebration of the Eucharist. A few people mentioned that this community is a bit large and should be split. These small Christian communities are the heart of the parish in Tanzania.

After Mass, the community updates its records, shares news and announcements, and plans for future community activities.

After we returned and had breakfast, I noticed a flurry of activity going on outside. Apparently, every Saturday the altar servers gather for cleaning and practice and fun.
