Lusaka, 11 November, 2021 / 9:13 pm (ACI Africa).
Women Religious under the auspices of the Zambia Association of Sisterhoods (ZAS) have been urged to encourage members to be vocal on faith matters.
The call came from the Local Ordinary Zambia’s Catholic Diocese of Chipata who noted that the contribution of Catholic Sisters in the Southern African nation is especially key in the ongoing Synodal conversations.
Bishop George Lungu further challenged women Religious in Zambia to take keen interest in the ongoing Synod on Synodality process, which he said seeks the opinion of religious women regarding their experience in areas of communion, participation and mission in the Church.
Bishop Lungu spoke at the 4th graduation ceremony of Catholic Sisters who had completed training in Administration through the African Sisters Education Collaborative (ASEC) program.
“While matters of administration, ICT and finances are important among Religious Congregations, it is of greater importance that we seek ways to sharpen the skills of our religious women in matters of communicating the faith. Faith is what forms the foundation of all that we do and say,” Bishop Lungu said.
