Rumbek, 13 June, 2023 / 9:21 pm (ACI Africa).
The newly ordained Priests for the Catholic Diocese of Rumbek will need to be keen on “action and service of God”, the Local Ordinary of the South Sudanese Diocese has said, cautioning them against the temptation to be “people of many words”.
In his homily during the Sunday, June 11 ordination of three Deacons to Priesthood, Bishop Christian Carlassare emphasized the need for the new Priests to get fully involved in the evangelization mission, spreading the word of God and administering Sacraments.

“Don’t be people of many words but people of action and service of God to the Church and the community,” Bishop Carlassare said during the ordination celebration that was held at Holy Family Cathedral of the Catholic Diocese of Rumbek.
He added, “After this ordination you need to be at the services of the people.”
