IAMA Logo

The Province of Mozambique and Angola was inaugurated on 24 September 2021. It consists of twelve dioceses, eight in Mozambique and four in Angola.

Until an archbishop is appointed, the presiding bishop of the province is the Rt. Rev. Carlos Matsinhe, Bishop of Lebombo. The new archbishop is expected to be appointed in March 2022.

In many dioceses, the bishop has yet to be appointed. This is expected in the first half of 2022. Until then, each of these dioceses is being administered by a Vicar General.
