By Deogratius Mwalamoyo

Bishop Alfred Mateyu Chaima of Zomba Diocese has encouraged youth to be patriotic citizens and resist from any kind of political violence ahead of next year’s tripartite elections.

Bishop Chaima was speaking during the celebration of Vocation Sunday at St Anthony Thondwe Catholic Parish.

He also encouraged the youth who are willing to contest on different political positions to do so with the aim of transforming their communities.

“You are church ambassadors hence you are supposed to be patriotic citizens on church community activities,” he said.

Bishop Chaima also encouraged the youth to be open by seeking spiritual guidance to church leaders when they are facing social challenges rather than committing suicide.

In his remarks, Vocation Director for Zomba Diocese, Fr Harold Bauleni reminded the youth about their role on church activities.

One of the young people, Grace Mbayani said that she felt challenged be an ambassador in his community in raising awareness on the importance of unity in readiness for next year’s elections.

On Sunday April 21, 2024, Catholic Churches world wide commemorate Vocation Sunday with the aim of equipping the youth on how they can be reliable citizens.
