St Thomas Parish Triumph in the 2023 Sunday School Competition

The St Thomas parish Sunday school children have emerged victorious in this year’s Mzuzu Diocese Sunday school quiz competition after beating Utatu Utuba and St Albert parish.

The champions bagged 11 points in a competition where 6 parishes participated.

The Finals were held on Saturday 2nd December 2023 at St Albert the Great Parish in Mzuzu with several children witnessing the colorful ceremony.

6 Sunday school teams from St Cecilia Parish – Mpherembe, St Thomas the Apostle-Mzuzu, Utatu Utuwa – Mzimba, St Theresa – Katete, St Johns Mzambazi, and St Albert the Great Katoto were battling for the title.

Both St Albert the Great and Utatu Utuwa were runners-up with 10 points each.

Mzuzu Diocese Sunday School Project Coordinator Noel Mtonga is pleased with the performance saying this signifies how important the sessions are for the diocese.

” The main aim of these competitions is to assess the effectiveness of the Sunday school lessons in enhancing children’s comprehension of Catechism and Biblical knowledge,” said Mtonga.

One of the Sunday school children from St Thomas Parish Kestina Shaba expressed happiness for winning the competition for the second time.

I am encouraging my colleagues to continue attending Sunday school lessons and parents should also inspire their children to take part in these competitions.
