Wau, 11 January, 2021 / 2:46 pm (ACI Africa).
In order to carry out a successful installation of the new Bishop for South Sudan’s Wau Diocese, a donation exercise has been initiated, spearheaded by a fundraising committee, an official has told ACI Africa over the weekend.
Speaking to ACI Africa on the sidelines of the launch of the funds drive toward the ordination of Bishop-elect Matthew Adam Gbitiku, the Chairman of Fundraising Committee, Clement Costa Kuot said, “We the committee members are working hard to make sure that the funds are raised for this important occasion of installing the Bishop.”
Mr. Kuot explained that the 15-member committee is reaching out to the people of God, especially Catholics in South Sudan and neighboring Sudan, to contribute to the kitty ahead of the Episcopal ordination scheduled to take place on January 24.
“So far, we have circulated some letters and we have received some (feedback) and we hope by next week the results will come,” he told ACI Africa during the Saturday, January 9 interview.
“We have the business community to talk to, as well as the faithful and individuals to contribute,” Mr. Kuot said and added, “The contribution done by our Catholics is a sign of faith and commitment and we are calling upon those who did not contribute to contribute because time is limited.”
