The annual anniversary in memory of the late Bishop Joseph Abangite Gasi, Bishop Gasi Day, will focus on peace and reconciliation in South Sudan, a member of the Clergy of South Sudan’s Catholic Diocese of Tombura-Yambio (CDTY) where the late Bishop served has said.
Bishop Gasi who passed away on 12 September 2014 had been at the helm of CDTY since his Episcopal Ordination in April 1975. He retired in April 2008 at the age of 80.
This year’s Bishop Gasi Day is to be marked from September 11-14.
In a September 2 interview with ACI Africa, Fr. Dominic Sasa said messages calling for peace and reconciliation in South Sudan are being prepared for this year’s Bishop Gasi Day celebration.
“This year’s commemoration of Gasi Day will focus on peace and reconciliation in South Sudan because the late Bishop was a man of peace,” Fr. Sasa said about the event that is being prepared under the theme, “Peace is what I leave you with” (John 14: 27).
