African Dioceses Offer Guidelines for Year of St. Joseph

The leadership of Cameroon’s Buea Diocese has issued pastoral orientations to guide the people of God in the Episcopal See in marking the Year dedicated to St. Joseph.

In February, the leadership of Gabon’s Diocese of Port-Gentil also issued pastoral orientations to guide the people of God throughout the Year dedicated to St. Joseph.

As part of their program to celebrate the year of St. Joseph, Catholics in Kenya’s Diocese of Ngong have been invited to participate in monthly reflections on the patron Saint of the Universal Church.

“There will be monthly reflections about St. Joseph led by the Priests. Since we are a mission land with few Priests, in some places, the Catechists will lead the reflections,” the Pastoral Coordinator of Ngong Diocese, Fr. Boniface Mukwe told ACI Africa January 25, adding, “We want the people to know who St. Joseph is, to imitate him, and to learn from his life.”

In Uganda, an initiative by children at Namugongo Catholic Parish of Uganda’s Kampala Archdiocese to mark the Year of St Joseph spread to other Parishes across the East African country, attracting other children who are eager to learn about the Saint.
