Catholic media entities in Malawi have been asked to raise awareness about the upcoming World Day of the Poor and encourage solidarity with poor members of society.
"We appeal to Catholic media institutions to come up with programs aimed at raising awareness of Christians about the World Day of the Poor by encouraging them to show solidarity with those in need within their communities," Fr. Valeriano Mtseka says.
Fr. Mtseka urges Small Christian Communities (SCCs) and Parishes in the Southern African nation to celebrate the day “by identifying and helping the poor within their communities.”
"We request Diocesan Pastoral Coordinators and Diocesan CADECOM (Catholic Development Commission in Malawi) Secretaries to collaborate in organizing the Diocesan event," he says.
