[Diocese of Antsiranana - Indian Ocean] The Theological College of Ambatoharanana in Madagascar calebrated the 130th anniversary of its foundation. The actual rector is the Canon Jaomandiny JB. Bishop Roger Chung Jaomalaza ,the President of the Board of the College Presided and preached at the Thanksgiving Eucharist at the Chapel of the College on Sunday 20th Jan 2008. The Students of the Dioceses of Antananarivo, Antsiranana, Toamasina, Mahanjanga and Fianarantsoa sang and danced during the service to express their joy.
Thanks to the support of USPG the training of seminarists can continue.

Bishop Roger also visited the Sisters of the Anglican Church in Tsinjohasina. The community of the Sisters of the Servants of Jesus Christ was initiated by the Rev Canon Hall Speers nearly 22 years ago at Ambatoharanana sharing facilities with the theological College. This was greatly assisted by Father David Wells SSM and later by Wantage Sisters ( CSMV ). Today they are working with the local community especially the children.
