Roman Catholic Church: Mpiri Mission

Roman Catholic Church

Mpiri Mission

Victor Vaessen, with the Catholic Montfort Missionaries, established Mpiri Mission in the Manchinga District of Nyasaland (Malawi) in 1935. He had arrived in Nyasaland in 1927 and returned to The Netherlands in 1936. Montfortian Father Tarcisio Betti was at Mpiri as of approximately 1958. Fr. Frandesco Valdameri served at Mpiri sometime after 1958.

The mission, which also is known as Mission of St. Louis Montfort of Mpiri (or St. Louis de Montfort Mpiri parish), is part of the Diocese of Mangochi. It is the site of the Mpiri Catholic church, Mpiri Primary School and Mpiri Health Center (hospital), which provides medical services to a large area of Manchinga District. The Health Center was substantially renovated in 2010 and a well was dug to address the lack of drinking water that threatened to close the mission.

Apostolic Vicariate of Shire

 

The Vicariate Apostolic of Shiré was an Apostolic vicariate located in Nyasaland Protectorate, Africa.

On 15 April 1908, Pope Pius X erected the prefecture into a vicariate Apostolic with Mgr Auguste Prezeau (1871-1909) of the Missionaries of the Company of Mary (Montfort Missionaries) as the first vicar.

On 4 May 1910, Mgr Louis Joseph Marie Auneau (1876-1959) received from Rome the notification of his elevation to the dignity of Apostolic vicariate. Mgr Auneau was consecrated at Chilubula, Northern Rhodesia, by Mgr Dupont of the Society of Missionaries of Africa (Missionari d’ Africa /White Fathers), 1 November 1910.

On 15 May 1952, the Apostolic Vicariate of Shiré was renamed as the Apostolic Vicariate of Blantyre. In 1959 it was promoted as the Archdiocese of Blantyre.
