Zomba, 05 November, 2021 / 8:52 pm (ACI Africa).
The closure of the Mission Month of October does not mark the end of the missionary work because “Church is Missionary in nature”, a Catholic Priest ministering in Malawi has said.
In a Tuesday, November 2 news report, the Pastoral Coordinator for Malawi’s Zomba Diocese “made a call to the faithful to commit themselves and continue with the mission of Christ” even as the Mission Month came to a close.
In continuing the mission of Jesus Christ, Fr. Innocent Chiwanda said, there is need “for Christians to collaborate with each other in proclaiming the Gospel through different apostolates and charity works.”
Fr. Chiwanda who was speaking at St. Vincent de Paul-Katamba Parish in Zomba Diocese during the National-level closing of the Mission Month continued, “Though the Church is closing the Mission Month of October, the mission must continue because the Church is Missionary in nature.”
The Catholic Priest who represented the Bishop of Zomba Diocese at the event explained, “By virtue of baptism, every Christian is a missionary; let’s empower each other to go out on various missionary assignments and work harder than before for the Gospel to reach far and wide.”
