Buea, 11 December, 2020 / 5:40 pm (ACI Africa).
At the anniversary marking 70 years since the canonical erection of Cameroon’s Buea Diocese, the Bishop at the helm of Cameroon’s oldest Diocese has acknowledged with appreciation the “strong faith” as well as “sacrifices” the people of God have demonstrated.
“Ever since my arrival and work in the diocese and after going through all the Parishes, I can confidently say that I have met a people with strong faith; a people who are ready to make all the necessary sacrifices to see to it that the word of God influences them and that they bring this word to their brothers and sisters,” Bishop Michael Miabesue Bibi said during the Thursday, December 10 event.
Bishop Bibi who was appointed the Apostolic Administrator of Buea in December 2019 added, “I’m sure that whatever we have is given to us by God and once we use it for the growth of the Church, it can only be a sign of blessing that God will give us in return.”
“We should continue to serve the Lord in a spirit of humility and to be ready to sacrifice all that we have for the good of the Church,” the Cameroonian Bishop said during the climax of the anniversary celebrations held at the Divine Mercy Co-cathedral Parish, Molyko, Southwestern region of Cameroon.
