Not usual, in terms of number, but this year Hanga abbey was blessed to welcome six young men to the stage of postulancy which is the beginning of training for monastic life. The event took place at the abbey on 15th of January. Indeed it is a blessing to the community of Hanga Abbey and all of the monks are happy and hopeful that these young men will make it to final profession. While it has been usual for the abbey to get vocations from southern Tanzania this group of young men has four them from the northern part of Tanzania. We warmly welcome them to serve God in the Lord’s house with other fellow monks.
