About Bishop André:

Bisphop André Soares
Bishop André Soares

André Soares has managed to hold the Angolan church together single-handedly since 1992, becoming the first bishop of the new diocese in 2003.

His personal testimony tells more of his life story and mentions the suffering that Christians went through under the Marxist government.
