Caxito, 28 September, 2023 / 9:00 pm (ACI Africa).
Bishop Maurício Agostinho Camuto of Caxito Diocese in Angola has challenged the three Deacons he ordained to the Priesthood on September 24 to be “faithful and zealous” in their ministry.
In his September 24 homily during the ordination of Deacons Domingos Filipe Isildo, Dário Bento Caxicula Francisca and Evaristo Rubem Econgo, Bishop Camuto said, “The priesthood is a service to God for our brothers and sisters.”
He added, during the Eucharistic celebration at Good Shepherd Kicolo Parish of Caxito Diocese, “Do not seek your own interests, but those of Jesus Christ. As you exercise the ministry of Christ, Head of the body of the Church and Shepherd of the people, seek to gather the faithful into one family, so that you can lead them to God the Father, through Christ in the Holy Spirit. United and attentive to the Bishop.”

“Always keep before you the example of the Good Shepherd, who came not to be served, but to serve and to seek and save that which was lost. Put your life at the service of your brothers and sisters,” Bishop Camuto said.
