Dedza, 17 December, 2021 / 8:40 pm (ACI Africa).
Women are suffering from inferiority complex for being sidelined in Church activities, the Catholic Bishop of Malawi’s Dedza Diocese has said and called for their active participation in Church.
In his address at the ongoing meeting of the Catholic Women Organization (CWO) in Malawi, Bishop Peter Adrian Chifukwa acknowledged the contribution of members of the women's group to the Church and encouraged them to keep the good work despite challenges they face.
“The Church is doing very well because of the contribution by CWO. I encourage them to keep up,” Bishop Chifukwa has been quoted as saying at CWO National Annual General Meeting (AGM) in a Friday, December 16 report.
The Malawian Bishop added, “Women are oppressed in various ways; so this (AGM) is an opportunity for them to see how they can overcome their inferiority complex and take on a complex that can help them solve the problems.”
He went on to acknowledge with appreciation the place of women in the Church saying, “Women are the key players of the Church. If we look at their families, the community and the country, women have a big role to play.”
