  1. Bishop Lungu, Chipata Diocese

    Greetings and thanks for information about the passing on of Rev. Fr. Lebel. His life history is quite evident that he was a Chipata foot soldier. I will write a circular to inform all parishes in which he laboured for and with our people to set one day for mass to pray for him. These are the men who should have been mourned by Chipata diocese and be put to rest behind Minga Church in the belly of mother Chipata Diocese. There is a lot to share about his work among us. Sincere condolences and May his soul rest in peace.
    Bishop Lungu
