Yei, 22 December, 2022 / 6:27 pm (ACI Africa).
There is need for young people in South Sudan to begin putting into practice their leadership traits, a Catholic Bishop in the East-Central African nation has said.
In his homily during Holy Mass to mark the Feast of St. Cecilia Tuesday, November 22, Bishop Alex Lodiong Sakor Eyobo of South Sudan’s Yei Diocese said young people need to foster cooperation in their practice of leadership.
“The youth need to prioritize cooperation among themselves, which will help them to practice leadership because they are the leaders of today in whatever they are doing to serve communities,” Bishop Lodiong said during the Holy Mass held at St. Cecilia Lutaya Center of Yei Diocese.
He said young people “need to start practicing leadership now,” adding that whatever they are doing in the Parish Centers, Parishes and the Diocese “is the start of the responsibility for being a leader.”
“We are counting on you as young people because some of you are educated with specializations,” the South Sudanese Catholic Bishop said, and added, “We need you to put the knowledge you have to assist the Church and communities.”
