Until his appointment as the Local Ordinary of Juba Archdiocese on December 12, Archbishop Ameyu recalled that he “was simply a priest, a staff, a teacher at St. Paul’s Major Seminary and I wanted to remain so for the whole of my life as teacher.”
Recalling the events of the months following his appointment, the 56-year-old South Sudanese Prelate invited all in attendance to “pray that the devil that would like us to be separated will be cast out.”
“Here today we are standing together, we are standing together to reconcile,” he said and added, “Our church is matured. We are just celebrated the centenary of faith in this Archdiocese and the theme was renewing our faith in Christ, not in anybody else, not in the Bishops.”
“We must refrain from violence,” the new Archbishop of Juba concluded.
