‘Malawian men running away from priesthood’

114

The Roman Catholic Church in the country has expressed concern over the shortage of priests saying the church is failing to serve the growing population in the country.

Leader of Catholic Church for Mangochi Diocese Bishop Montfort Sitima said the situation has come about because parents are not encouraging youths to become priests.

Speaking during Silver Jubilee celebrations of one the priests Medrick Chimbwanya, Sitima said parents have a role in contributing to evangelization by sending more boys for priestly formation.

Bishop Montfort Sitima says the trend is worrisome.

“Today we are celebrating this Jubilee but in future we will not be celebrating because we haven’t been able to have new priests in our diocese,” said Sitima.

In his remarks, Chimbwanya urged Christians in the diocese to consider different vocations that are in the church adding that youths in the church should consider becoming nuns and priests.

“My friends whom I were ordained with when they were celebrating their jubilees they had some new priests being ordained but that is not the case here,” said Chimbwanya.

Mangochi diocese serves people in the districts of Mangochi, Balaka and parts of Machinga in the Ecclesiastical province of Blantyre in Malawi.

It was established as the Apostolic Prefecture of Fort Johnston from the Diocese of Zomba in 1969.

Hello I’m Samuel Okizou by name, I’m giving a testimony about Dr.Sule the great Herbalist, he has the cure to all manner of diseases, he cured my HIV disease, though I went through different website I saw different testimonies about different herbalists, I was like: “Many people have the HIV cure why are people still suffering from it?” I thought of it, then I contact Dr.Sule via email, I didn’t believe him that much, I just wanted to give him a try, he replied my mail and Needed some Information about me, then I sent them to him, he prepared the CURE and sent it to me via UPS courier service, they told me that it will take 3-4 days before I’ll get the parcel, 3 days later I received the package and I started taking the medicine as prescribed by him, after 7 days of taking the medicine I went for check-up, I was tested HIV NEGATIVE… IF YOU ARE SERIOUS YOU WILL BE CURED!!! contact Dr Sule on whats-app +2348162447651

  5. How can you encourage the youth not to have children of their own? I think this decision has to be personal at a certain age of their lives. Actually, something is wrong about this priesthood. Most of those guys have secret women and children and that’s double standard. By the way, you wouldn’t be there if your father decided to be one

  10. Those are lies this church of Rome tells people. There are vocations, but the main problem is that the church is dealing with social status.
