Catholic Diocese of Bo hosts the Inter Territorial Catholic Bishops’ Conference of The Gambia and Sierra Leone Plenary Meeting 2013
The Catholic Diocese of Bo played host to the plenary meeting of the Bishops of The Gambia and Sierra Leone. The week-long meeting was held at the Campus View Lodge, Bo City from the 21st – 27th January 2013.
The meeting started with a day of recollection which was directed by Rev. Fr. Bruno Mihiybena, SMA. The second day was devoted to a study session on “The Year of Faith” which was facilitated by Rev. Fr. Matthew Kanneh, Rector of St. Paul’s Major Seminary.
The Bishops spent the succeeding days discussing matters of pastoral concerns to the Episcopal Conference. These concerns range from evangelization, priestly formation, appointments to various Commissions and plans for the future.
The plenary meeting was climaxed with a Pontifical concelebrated Mass held at the Immaculate Heart Cathedral, Bo.
The Bishop, Priests, Religious and Lay Faithful of the Catholic Diocese of Bo were delighted to have had the privilege to host the plenary meeting. We wish our Bishops every success in their Episcopal endeavours.
