Fr. Andrew was for 20 years a missionary in Tanzania, being for 9 years the Superior of the Mission. From 1993 to 1999, he was the Vicar General and the General Mission Secretary and in 1999 he was elected as the General Superior of the Society of the Divine Saviour. He fulfilled this important responsibility during two consecutive terms of office, always inspired by the apostolic zeal of our Founder, Fr. Francis Jordan, and with a heart full of missionary commitment and the concern that all should know God and his beloved Son, Jesus the Saviour.

A thanksgiving Mass was celebrated at Kurasini Parish in Dar es Salaam, presided by Cardinal Policarp Pengo.

Founder's Thoughts

As long as there is one person on earth who does not know God and does not love God above all things, you dare not allow yourself a moment’s rest.
