Archbishop Amani moves to Arusha! 

Following his appointment by the the Holy Father Pope Francis, Bishop Isaac Amani was appointed the Archbishop of the Archdiocese of Arusha. He was installed on April 8, 2018 and became the 4th archbishop of Arusha, following the retirement of Archbishop Josephat Luis Lebulu, upon reaching the retirement canonical age. Archbishop Amani will truly be missed in Moshi. His ten years of pastoral ministry in Moshi will be remembered with nostalgia. 

Archbishop Amani, we will forever remember you
