The Local Ordinary of Lilongwe Archdiocese who doubles as the Chairman of the Episcopal Conference of Malawi (ECM) urged parishioners of the new Parish to strive to take part in the daily Eucharistic celebrations as a manifestation of their love for God.
Participating in daily Holy Mass and Adoration, the member of the Religious Order of Discalced Carmelites (OCD) said, facilitates in fostering the unity and oneness of the Parishioners.
In his August 27 homily, the Malawian Archbishop who started his Episcopal Ministry in Malawi’s Zomba Diocese in January 2016 went on to urge parishioners of St. Francis de Sales-Manyani Parish to develop a sense of ownership by protecting the property and contributing generously to enable the new parish to grow.
He thanked the Parishioners for working “hard to meet the standards required for the establishment of the new parish.”
“The most delightful thing for a Priest and a Bishop is when the church is growing. I am thankful to the Missionaries of St. Francis de Sales for accepting to take up this responsibility,” Archbishop Tambala said during his August 27 homily, and appointed Fr. Sebastian Robert Chinnappan of the Missionaries of St. Francis de Sales (MSFS), as the first parish Priest of the new parish.
In his remarks, a representative of Madisi Deanery under with the new Parish falls, Fr. Wales, said he was delighted about the development of the new Parish and urged all parishioners to unite to grow in faith, love of God and the salvation of souls.
