Lilongwe, 12 November, 2021 / 8:50 pm (ACI Africa).
Members of the Press in Malawi planning to cover the upcoming installation of the new Archbishop for Lilongwe Archdiocese, George Desmond Tambala, have been asked to maintain good conduct especially during the Liturgical celebration.
In a Friday, November 12 letter obtained by ACI Africa, the communications coordinator of Malawi’s Lilongwe Archdiocese acknowledges complaints the office has received concerning inappropriate behavior of some media practitioners during Holy Mass.
“There has been an outcry from many liturgy participants resonated by the Archdiocesan authorities about the unpleasant conduct of some reporters, photographers and other media related individuals during a church function,” Fr. Louis Chikanya says in the letter that was addressed to media practitioners.
Fr. Chikanya adds, “Every Catholic should know that at a church function, where there is holy Mass, our priority is the Mass; our attention and focus is on the Mass.”
The Holy Father appointed Bishop Tambala as the Local Ordinary of Lilongwe Archdiocese on October 15.
