The Secretary of the Dicastery for Evangelization has called on members of the Association of the Regional Episcopal Conferences of Central Africa (ACERAC) to be the mouthpiece and defenders of youth who face numerous migration challenges in the region.
In his address in the ongoing annual ACERAC Plenary Assembly in Mongomo, Equatorial Guinea, Archbishop Protase Rugambwa, the Bishop Emeritus of Tanzania’s Kigoma Diocese, said that young people are the worst affected group by challenges of migration.
“The Episcopate of Central Africa should be the mouthpiece and tireless defender of youth in their respective governments and societies, drawing attention to the reality of the migratory phenomenon, which sees young people at the forefront, especially as victims,” Archbishop Rugambwa said.
Delegates of the Plenary Assembly that started July 17 and is set to end July 24, are addressing the theme, “The Phenomenon of the Youth Migration: The case of Central Africa.”
In a Wednesday, July 20 report by the information service of Propaganda Fide, Agenzia Fides, Archbishop Rugambwa considered the theme “essential and current.”
