2017 Extraordinary National Catholic Forum Deligates

The 2017 extraordinary National Catholic Forum of the Zambia Conference of Catholic Bishops (ZCCB) has opened in Lusaka.

It opened yesterday 9th November, 2017 at Kapingila ZCCB house. And the Catholic Bishops of Zambia have reiterated that the Church is no longer a mission one, but a Church on mission. In his opening remarks on behalf of the Bishops, ZCCB President Archbishop Telesphore Mpundu added that the Church in Zambia should play its rightful role and duty in the work of evangelisation. He also noted the threats to the Catholic faith by young people leaving the Church for the evangelicals. “As people who are on mission, we are not lone rangers. We move as a family. In the recent past we have head threats to the faith. The youths are going to the evangelicals,” he said. He observed the need to stem the trend of young people leaving the Catholic Church because of the gospel of prosperity that they hear from evangelicals by going back to the drawing board and see how they [ young people] in the Church are treated. Archbishop Mpundu further advised Christians to live up to Christ standards and be the salt of the Earth and the light of the World if they are to influence other religions. The 2017 extraordinary National Catholic Forum is discussing interreligious dialogue in the advent of the emergence and growing influence of Islam in the country. The National Catholic Forum is the biannual gathering of the Laity, Priests and Religious men and women to discuss various issues of importance to the Catholic faith and general wellbeing of Christians and the nation.
