Maputo, 01 September, 2020 / 9:21 pm (ACI Africa).
The Church in Mozambique is celebrating a week of faith and social commitment to commemorate the first anniversary of Pope Francis’s visit to the Southern African country, an official has told ACI Africa.
The leadership of the Social Department of the Episcopal Conference of Mozambique (CEM), which includes different social commissions, explained to ACI Africa that the week-long celebrations expected to end on Saturday, September 5 will be marked with spiritual reflections in all Dioceses of the country.
“Each Diocese has organized the best methodology or dynamics to make this material known, reflected on and prayed for,” the Secretary of the Episcopal Commission for Migrants, Refugees and Displaced Persons of CEM, Sr. Marinês Biasibetti said in reference to the planned reflections to mark one year since the Holy Father visited the country.
Sr. Marinês added, “Everyone is invited to make his or her contribution not only to the reflection, but above all to commit themselves to living and promoting hope, peace and reconciliation in all areas, in different contexts.”
Organized under the theme, “Hope, Peace and Reconciliation,” the ongoing celebration follows two earlier week-long events of Faith and Social Commitment that took place in 2018 and in 2019.
