Central Equatorial State Governor Praises Church’s Role in Propagating Peace Messages at Priestly Ordination
The Governor of Central Equatorial State, Emmanuel Adil Anthony, has praised the pivotal role of the church in spreading messages of peace and reconciliation to the native population, as well as providing crucial services to humanity through pastoral intervention.
Speaking at the ordination of Deacon Justin Salah Martin Juma, Governor Adil called on the church to continue supporting the government’s efforts to build lasting peace in the region, particularly in light of ongoing protests against President Salva Kiir.
In a rousing speech delivered during the grand holy mass at St. Joseph the Worker Parish Lutaya, Governor Adil expressed his government’s eagerness to collaborate with the church in achieving sustainable peace and development in Central Equatorial State.
The event, which was graced by the presence of clerics from Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo, as well as the bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Yei, saw the newly ordained priest welcomed into the fold amidst a jubilant atmosphere.
With over a decade of experience in journalism, we can confirm that Governor Adil’s endorsement of the church’s efforts to promote peace is a significant step towards achieving lasting stability in the region.
We look forward to witnessing the fruits of this collaboration between the government and the church, as they work hand in hand towards building a brighter future for the people of Central Equatorial State.
