Khartoum, 17 November, 2020 / 9:23 pm (ACI Africa).
Operating under a single Catholic Bishops’ Conference has so far been smooth for Prelates in South Sudan and Sudan even after the former seceded, the Archbishop of Sudan’s Khartoum Archdiocese has told ACI Africa.
After a weeklong annual Plenary Assembly of the Bishops of both countries, Archbishop Michael Didi acknowledged that the two countries under one Conference are progressing smoother currently as opposed to the days following the July 2011 secession.
“We (Bishops in Sudan and South Sudan) are so far doing well as one Conference in two countries. Our work is smoother than days after the separation in 2011,” Archbishop Didi told ACI Africa Sunday, November 15.
Archbishop Didi acknowledged that after the independence of South Sudan from Sudan nine years ago, the Bishops experienced numerous challenges as they sought to operate as one Conference in two distinct countries.
