"SUNDAY BEFORE THE EXALTATION OF THE CROSS AND MEETING WITH CATECHISTS IN GULU.
Today at St.Lavrentios Cathedral Gulu, the His Grace Bishop Silvester met with the Catechists of Northern Region of the Diocese.
He welcomed them in joy, encouraged them and gave them words of advise in their service as cathechists carrying along with the clergy, a big responsibility of mobilizing, teaching cathechumens, helping priests in Parishes & communities and even leading faithful in Prayer in communities or in parishes during the absence of the Priest.
He noted that he prays for continuity of this program of meeting the Catechists more often as another way of empowering them in their service.
Also in his message he related to today's Sunday before the Exaltation of the Cross saying: "As humble people of God, who are also aware of our weaknesses and of His mercy to us, we can only feel proud of standing by His Holy Will in all situations, by Carrying His Cross in our Lives. Thats what the Apostle Paul is telling us when he says (as we saw in todays readin that): <But God forbid that I should boost in anything, except in the Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world is crucified to me, and I to the world.>(Gal 6:14)."
