Bishop Sithembele Sipuka – SACBC Vice President

The Catholic Church in Botswana is not young but she is still growing strong.  For a long time Botswana had only one diocese of Gaborone. Later the she gave birth to a Vicariate of Francistown which is in the northern part of the country. During the year 2017, His Holiness Pope Francis elevated the vicariate of Francistown to become, for the first time, the Diocese of Francistown. During his homily in the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Dessert in Francistown Bishop Sithembele strongly reminded  the faithful of Francistown that the Church is universal in character and it is not united on tribes, races or nationalities.

His Holiness Pope Francis

“This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him” (Ps 34:6).  The Church has always understood the importance of this cry.  We possess an outstanding testimony to this in the very first pages of the Acts of the Apostles, where Peter asks that seven men, “full of the Spirit and of wisdom” (6:3), be chosen for the ministry of caring for the poor.  This is certainly one of the first signs of the entrance of the Christian community upon the world’s stage: the service of the poor.  Read the rest of FIRST WORLD DAY OF THE POOR TO BE ON THE 19 NOVEMBER 2017 »
