Holy Trinity Parish Shut after Parishioners Protest Transfer of Priest

The Catholic Diocese of Ndola has closed down Holy Trinity Trinity, Mulenga Parish of Kamfinsa with immediate effect following protests by parishioners on Sunday.

According to a circular to the Diocesan Management, the parish will remain closed indefinitely.

“This serves to inform you that the Diocesan Senior Management through the Apostolic Administrator has with immediate effect closed Holy Trinity, Mulenga Parish of Kamfinsa Deanery in Kitwe indefinitely,” read the circular signed by Father Mathews Mumba.

During the closure, no activities will take place including celebrating mass.

The congregants were protesting the transfer of Father Anthony Agbovi to another parish after having served for eight months.

“The closure implies that the Blessed Sacrament (Eucharist) be withdrawn from the Church building together with parish records immediately,” stated Fr Mumba.

    Good move by the Church.This idea of indiscipline and anarchy should not be allowed anymore in the Church.Let there b a differe.nce between christians and cadres.

    Why are catholics in Kitwe behaving like Bushiri’s followers? What is this priest, Agbovi, doing to the Parishoners? Catholics are always well behaved and should not react as if this a “lack-of-service-delivery” protest somewhere in Soweto…
