    Background: IN NORTHERN RHODESIA, WORK IS GOING AHEAD ON A NEW ROMAN CATHOLIC CATHEDRAL AT KASAMA, IN THE NORTHERN PROVINCE, DESPITE THE RECENT ACTIVITIES OF A FANATICAL RELIGIOUS SECT IN THE AREA.

    THE SECT, CALLED THE LUMPA CHURCH, PREACHES A MIXTURE OF CHRISTIANITY AND AFRICAN RELIGIONS.

    ITS FOLLOWERS WERE RECENTLY INVOLVED IN CLASHES RESULTING IN THE DEATHS OF AT LEAST TWENTY-NINE PEOPLE.

    SINE 1962 A LARGE NUMBER OF CHURCHES HAVE BEEN BURNED, AND IT'S BELIEVED THAT THE NEW KASAMA CATHEDRAL COULD WELL BE THE TARGET FOR A SIMILAR ATTACK IN THE FUTURE.

    HOWEVER THE WHITE FATHERS, WHO ARE BUILDING THE CATHEDRAL WITH AFRICAN HELD, ARE UNDAUNTED.

    THE CATHEDRAL WILL MEASURE ONE-HUNDRED-AND TWO FEET BY ONE-HUNDRED-AND-TWO FEET, AND THE MAIN BODY EIGHTY FEET BY EIGHTY FEET.

    BUILT TO ACCOMMODATE SEVEN-HUNDRED-AND-FIFTY WORSHIPPERS, IT'S EXPECTED TO COST ABOUT TWENTY-FIVE-THOUSAND POUNDS.

    ALL THE BUILDING MATERIALS ARE BEING OBTAINED LOCALLY.

    IT'S HOPED TO HAVE THE ROOF ON THE NEW CATHEDRAL BEFORE THE RAINS IN OCTOBER, AND COMPLETE THE WHOLE STRUCTURE IN ANOTHER TWELVE MONTHS.

    THE WHITE FATHERS MISSION HAS BEEN ACTIVE IN THE NORTHERN PROVINCE OF NORTHERN RHODESIA SINCE 1897, AND HAVE BUILT SEVERAL CHURCHES AND MISSION BUILDINGS.
