GWERU –
Roman Catholic Gweru Diocese head, Bishop Xavier Munyongani is celebrating his third anniversary as a bishop this year.
The event will be marked at a combined mass to be held at the Gweru Cathedral this Sunday (September  18, 2016).
Bishop Manyongani was ordained on September 14, 2013.
Speaking in an interview with The Mirror last week the humble bishop said he would soon embark on his biggest project since he was ordained; that is to build a youth and pastoral centre.
The Pastoral Center will be located in Gweru and The Mirror is reliably informed that land for the purpose has already been found.
Bishop Munyongani described his three years in office as incredible.
"Martin Luther King once said that he had a dream and that dream was for a just society in the United States. His dream was, 'We will walk with each other and they will know we are Christians by our love for each other, yes, they will know we are Christians by our love'.
"And this is also my dream in the Midlands," said Bishop Munyongani.
He hinted on the  multi-ethnic composition of the Gweru Diocese and said all people are one as Christians.
"Following my hopes and dreams I have a feeling that I am not alone and I thank all Catholics who support me for these plans to come true," he said.
Bishop Munyongani was born in 1950 in Gutu, Masvingo and he was raised in a Christian family so he joined the minor seminary at a young age at Chikwingwizha Minor Seminary in 1967.
In 1971-1977 he was at Chishawasha Major Seminary, where he was ordained a priest in 1977 and his first assignment was at St Antony in Zaka.
He moved from one parish to the other from 1977 to 1984 when he was assigned to start a Novitiate for brother, an assignment he carried up to 1986.
Bishop Munyongani also studied liturgical and church history in Rome, he is a holder of a Masters in Church History and Liturgy.
He also studied Sabbatical studies in German and held a position of Chaplin of Catholic Zimbabweans in England.
