Zimbabwe Catholic Bishops Conference (ZCBC) Secretary General Fr. Frederick Chiromba last Thursday strongly urged Catholic legislators to work for a reconciled Zimbabwe.

He said this during the Eucharist celebrations held for members of Catholic Legislators Network at the Parliament building in Harare where he also shared with them the vision of the bishop’s conference

Exhorting the legislators to have faith that works for justice, Fr Chiromba said the aim of the church is to work for a reconciled Zimbabwe where people live in peace and harmony.

“The church aims to instil values in the nation of spirituality, morality, promotion of unity and diversity and respect for human rights and dignity,” he added.

He added that the church is working through various commissions to partner and compliment the work of government in areas like education, health and social services.

Fr Chiromba further noted that the challenges faced by society are the challenges faced by the church and he stressed on the importance of creating strong institutions which will live beyond this generation for the benefit of every Zimbabwean.

The Deputy Chairperson of the Catholic Legislators Network Honourable Never Kanye, thanked Fr Chiromba for the advice and said the legislators will call upon themselves to be messengers of God though he also expressed his worries in the low attendance of the Network’s members which could affect the mission of the group.
