Members of the Association of Consecrated Women in Eastern and Central Africa (ACWECA) have unveiled the theme for their 2024 Plenary Assembly that seeks to strengthen the formation of Catholic Nuns in the region.
The President of ACWECA told participants during the unveiling event that the theme, “Transformative holistic formation for authentic living towards a deeper evangelization in the ACWECA Region and beyond”, was arrived at after days of reflection and listening to the Holy Spirit.
“We have been here in Uganda for the past week. Our main purpose has been to come up with a theme for the upcoming Plenary in August 2024,” Sr. Rosalia Sakayombo said in her speech shared with ACI Africa on Thursday, August 31.
Sr. Rosalia added in her August 25 address, “In these days we reflected, listened to the Holy Spirit and we collectively came up with a theme that focuses on our felt need in the region – formation as critical to our consecrated life.”
During the weeklong meeting organized at Ulrika Guest House in Kampala, Uganda, Board of ACWECA and ACWECA National Conferences Executive Secretaries from nine countries paid attention to the “signs of our time”.
