Religious books and magazines, liturgical vestments,
tasbii, pictures, audio and video cassettes and cds have special
effects in the evangelization of the word of God.
For a long time these things were not available
in the diocese, people had to travel to Moshi or Dar to buy them.
In solving the above problem Bishop
Anthony Banzi decided to start a Diocesan bookshop. After getting
enough money, he started to reconstruct the building which was formally
bishop’s office. In February 2, 1997 the shop was opened named
St. Anthony’s Bookshop.
In the year 2003 the shop was shifted to another
build, youth building, near Tanga Post Office. A lot of problem
of getting Altar wine, bible, liturgical vestments etc can now be
solved by visiting this shop.
The shop offers a good service to a good number of Christians in
the diocese Catholics and non-Catholics.
