Congratulation to Father Marc Nsanzurwimo who completed recently his doctorate at the Pontificia Università Urbaniana in Rome. His thesis, entitled The Funeral in Zambia with Particular Reference to the Lala People of Serenje, is focusing on rites and customs from which life flows within and between the visible and invisible worlds. The research is a reflection on funeral as a locus for inculturation within the context of evangelization and encounter between African traditional religion and the Church.
Marc is very happy about his achievement. Moreover, he was pleased to see that a student consulted his thesis on the same day he put his document in the FENZA library.
In the coming weeks, he intends to finish gathering some reflections which he started to do years ago with some parishioners of Regiment Parish. Hopefully, with some funds, another book will be ready for publication by January 2013 with the title; Regiment Parish, St Charles Luangwa, 70 years of Evangelization and Social Concern.
We wish Marc Nsanzurwimo to enjoy making more research in line with the vocation of FENZA Centre where he has now been appointed.
