Our Hanga abbey website reporter, Frater Lucius Matembo, OSB, had a tragedy of the death of his father, Mr. Zenobius Matembo toward the end of February this year, 2013. He died of acute malaria. A man of short stature and few words, Mr. Zenobius was loved by all at his village of Luwaita/Zomba near Mbinga town in southern Tanzania. He raised his children in good moral upbringing and catholic faith. As a result of his faith we have Frater Lucius Matembo, OSB, as a monk of Hanga Abbey. And speaking of Frater Lucius, the abbey has a great man who knows what it means to be a monk and always dedicated to the task given to him by the abbey. We thank Frater Lucius for his good work of administering the abbey dispensary. We extend our condolence to Frater Lucius and his siblings and relatives for the death of his father. May he rest in peace.
