KOLPING SOCIETY OF TANZANIA (KST)

The Kolping Society of Tanzania was established in 1989 after the then Diocesan Bishop of Bukoba, the Right Reverend Bishop Nestor Timanywa, gave his consent for its establishment. Under the persuasion and guidance of the Director of the Lay Apostolate in Bukoba Diocese, Very Rev. Msgr. David Kamugisha, twelve members in Bukoba Parish formed a Kolping Family which was formally inaugurated in June of that year. From Bukoba Diocese the Society has spread to the other dioceses of Rulenge Ngara, Kigoma, Sumbawanga, Mwanza, Dar es Salaam, Tanga, Morogoro, Kayanga, Mbulu, Musoma, Bunda, Same, Arusha, Singida, Tabora, Kayanga, Iringa, Songea, Dodoma and Geita. The KST has over 15,000 registered members (men and women) countrywide from 370 self-help groups or Local Kolping Families in 145 parishes of the above dioceses.
