A Catholic Priest ministering in South Sudan has proposed to the Church institutions in the East-Central African nation to consider archiving paper documents in any data medium for future reference.
According to Fr. Jim Greene who is the Executive Director of Solidarity with South Sudan (SSS), there is a need for the Church institutions in the nine-year-old nation to have a Centre for their own archives, which will contain all the projects that have been undertaken by the Church to gauge its progress.
Addressing a group of students and some administrators for Catholic institutions at the Catholic University of South Sudan (CUSS), Fr. Jim said documenting such information and keeping it safely would be significant for the Church institution in South Sudan as it continues its principal responsibility of transforming lives of people in the world’s newest country.
“It is important for the Church institutions to keep that record of all activities that are done in various departments of the Dioceses,” Fr. Jim said Tuesday, November 10 during the 10th anniversary of the 101 Days of prayer towards a peace that resulted in the independence of South Sudan in July 2011.
He added, “There is a need for the Church departments to have a Centre for their own archives to keep the memories alive.”
