Aliwal, 30 September, 2023 / 9:35 pm (ACI Africa).
The Migrants and Refugees Office of the Southern African Catholic Bishops’ Conference (SACBC) has unveiled a set of guidelines that seek to unite Dioceses and parishes in the country in praying for the people on the move.
In a statement shared with ACI Africa on Thursday, September 28, the Liaison Bishop for the SACBC Migrants and Refugees Office underscored the need for inclusion when handling issues of refugees.
“The SACBC Migrants and Refugees Office has prepared a Liturgy kit with some suggestions that may help the Dioceses and Parishes to pray together for all people on the move and for the reality of our countries,” Bishop Joseph Mary Kizito said.
He added, “The context in which we are living right now in Southern Africa should be a call to pray for unity, reconciliation, strength and more inclusions. Our mission is to build together a better place to live in harmony and respect as human creatures of God.”
The Ugandan-born Catholic Bishop called on the people of God in host countries to “humbly recall that all human beings have been made in the image of God and that we are our brothers and sisters' keepers.”
