Maryknollers arrived in Musoma in 1946 to work side by side with the White Fathers in what was then Mwanza Diocese. When Musoma was made a Diocese in 1957, Maryknoller John Rudin (now deceased) was the first bishop. While primary evangelization has been the first priority of Maryknoll in Musoma. Maryknoll priests, brothers, sisters and lay missionaries have also built and worked in churches, dispensaries and schools from Bunda and the Serengeti to the Kenya border. Now in Musoma are 6 Maryknoll priests and brothers (just 20% of their numbers in the 1970’s) in apostolates that will soon be in the hands of Tanzanians.
Musoma is home to the wajita people, the luo, the zanaki and the kuria amongst others, more than 12 ethnic groups altogether. The industries in this region are cotton and fish(nile perch).
