BLANTRYE--Roman Catholic Bishops of the Episcopal of Conference of Malawi (ECM) are meeting in Lilongwe to discuss the country’s ailing economy, social and political situation, among others.
The meeting will run from Monday through to Friday this week, according to Reverend Father George Buleya, ECM Secretary General.
But Buleya could not figure out the meeting’s agenda saying they will issue a statement on Monday. He however said the bishops take advantage of the meeting to deliberate holistic issues for the betterment of the person’s body as well as the soul.
“We can not discuss the soul without highlighting the issues that affect the human body,” said Buleya.
He said they will also discuss the visit of the Vatican Ambassador who is currently in Malawi and the visiting American delegation the church is hosting.
ECM comprises the Dioceses of Chikhwawa, Dedza, Karonga, Zomba, Mangochi, Mzuzu and the Archdioceses of Lilongwe and Blantyre, and its mission is to provide holistic evangelization through teaching and promoting unity, development, justice peace and solidarity.
