Catholic Church Holds Weeklong Conference
The Plenary Assembly of the Catholic Bishops Conference of Liberia (CABICOL) has held a weeklong conference in Gbarnga, Bong County, thus bringing together several Catholics across the country.
The Plenary Assembly is the annual gathering of the Catholic Bishops and other religious men and women as well as people of goodwill from across Liberia.
It brings together the religious community and citizens from other segment within the Catholic Church.
The annual gathering is meant to discuss important issues that are pertinent to the development of the Church and the country and its people.
This year’s event was organized under the theme: “Dialogue through Entrepreneurship.”
The Plenary Assembly is also intended to rejuvenate ideas that are important to the functions of the Church and its members.
Speaking at the opening of the event, the Secretary General of CABICOL, Rev. Fr. Dennis Nimene said the Catholic Church is not dead as is being widely speculated in some quarters in the country.
He noted that the Church is more involved with dialoguing rather than talking harsh on critical national issues in the past.
Rev. Fr. Nimene clarified that the Catholic Church is still speaking on key national issues that affect the citizens of the country as part of its responsibility in the country. He spoke at a press conference in Gbarnga, Bong County.
Also speaking at the news conference, Bishop Anthony Borwah said the Catholic Church of Liberia has reaffirmed its support to the Government and people of Liberia in the areas of education and health.
Bishop Borwah, who is the head of the Diocese of Gbarnga, noted that the Catholic Church remains committed to providing quality education to the people of Liberia.
Bishop Borwah then revealed that the issue of providing quality health to the Government and people of Liberia remains a key priority for the Catholic Church.
He is at the same time calling on every Liberian from all sectors to join the Government to work collectively, aimed at ensuring the growth and development of the economy.
