We were saddened to learn of the sudden passing of Mrs. Cecilia Shija Mganga, 77, mother of Reverend Claudius Mpuya Mganga, Parochial Vicar of Our Lady of Fatima Parish, Inverness. Father Claudius received word of his mother’s death in her native Tanzania, shortly after midnight today, February 23, 2021. While Mrs. Mganga was in relatively good health, her death was presumed to be the result of a heart attack.
Funeral services were held in Tanzania on March 1, 2021. Father Claudius traveled to east Africa, to spend time with his family and loved ones. Please keep him in your prayers, along with his 11 siblings and his mother’s surviving brother and sister.
Expressions of sympathy may be sent to Reverend Claudius Mganga, c/o Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Church, 550 U.S. Highway 41 S., Inverness, FL 34450.
