Torit, 10 January, 2023 / 8:00 pm (ACI Africa).
The Catholic Archbishop of Juba in South Sudan has called on members of the Clergy in Torit Diocese to contribute to the extension of the kingdom of God through their service to humanity.
Speaking during a Thanksgiving Mass to welcome the newly appointed Bishop of the South Sudanese Diocese on Sunday, January 8, Archbishop Stephen Ameyu Martin said pastoral agents need to cultivate the virtue of selfless service.
“To extend the kingdom of God, we must serve our brothers and sisters,” Archbishop Ameyu said during the Holy Mass to welcome Mons. Emmanuel Bernardino Lowi Napeta that was held at Sts. Peter and Paul Cathedral of Torit Diocese.
He added, “We need to extend our relationship with God to do his work diligently.”
The Local Ordinary of Juba Diocese who doubles as the Apostolic Administrator of Torit Diocese reminded members of the Clergy of their pastoral responsibilities, saying, “No one plays anything on behalf of anyone; even me as your shepherd I play my part as a shepherd.”
