Tigray, 05 June, 2022 / 8:40 pm (ACI Africa).
A Catholic Priest in Ethiopia has called upon young girls and women to assist in evangelizing in Gode, a city in the Somali region of Ethiopia, located in the Shebelle zone in the Horn of Africa country.
In a report by the information service of Propaganda Fide, Agenzia Fides, the Apostolic Prefect of Robe in Ethiopia, Fr. Angelo Antolini, said that Gode is served by a Catholic Nun who commits herself in “paying attention to the ladies in difficulty and their children.”
“Many are sick and afflicted by many economic, moral, often dramatic relational problems, but she is alone. We are looking for some girls or mature women with a good missionary spirit, who can accompany her, but it is not easy,” Fr. Antolini has been quoted as saying in a Thursday, June 2 Agenzia Fides report.
In the report, the Catholic Priest says that the Nun who helps the needy women and children in the region needs to be helped to carry out the service towards the people.
He says that the mission to evangelize to the Somalis in the area began in December 2020 when Bishop Angelo Pagano of Harar Diocese and Archbishop Antoine Camilleri, the Apostolic Nuncio in Ethiopia, signed the mission.
