    Catholic Church in Africa: Message of Goodwill from the Dicastery for Communication of the Holy See to the Plenary Assembly of the Symposium of the Episcopal Conferences of Africa and Madagascar (SECAM)

    Goodwill message from the Dicastery for Communication of the Holy See to the SECAM Plenary Assembly:

    To His Eminence Philippe Cardinal OUEDRAOGO, President, SECAM

    Your Eminences,

    Your Excellencies,

    Dear participants,

    Heartfelt congratulations to His Eminence Philippe Cardenal OUEDRAOGO, President of SECAM. It fills me with great joy to wish you the best of success for the 19th Plenary Assembly to be held in Accra, Ghana, on the theme “Ownership of SECAM; Security and Migration in Africa and the Islands”.

    Three years ago, after celebrating its golden anniversary, SECAM opened a new chapter for the Church, Family of God in Africa, by issuing the SECAM Kampala Document (KD) 2019, entitled “So that they may know Christ and have life in abundance”. (Jn 17,3; 10,10).

    I take this opportunity today to express to your Plenary Assembly my deepest appreciation for the call and commitment of the Kampala Document regarding communications. In effect, it says:

    “We commit ourselves to give all our support to Catholic communication professionals so that they can develop their mission harmoniously and always seek to establish a relationship of ecclesial communication with international organizations. SECAM will further strengthen its communication body to optimize its evangelizing resources towards a communication plan at the continental level” (KD 214).

    To this end, the document "invites the national episcopal conferences to fully engage in the technical, doctrinal and moral training of all pastoral agents who work with the media." With proper guidance, they will ensure that they are not afraid to express their faith in the world of communication” (KD 215). The explosion and globalization of social networks today make this commitment more urgent than ever....

    The revitalization of the Pan-African Episcopal Committee for Social Communications (CEPACS), desired by the Apostolic Exhortation Ecclesia in Africa (cf. Pope John Paul II, Ecclesia in Africa, n. 126), has made good progress, and I praise the appointment of its President, Monsignor Emmanuel BADEJO, as a member of the Dicastery for Communication.

    In collaboration with the Pan-African Episcopal Committee for Social Communications (CEPACS), we urge Catholic universities and higher education institutions to guarantee the best training in social communication studies on a human and professional level. (Cf. KD 216). Obviously, techniques, communication skills and media culture must have a significant place in all fields of training and also in curricula. Above all, it is everyone's duty to project an objective image of Africa in the local and international media in order to correct the often “apocalyptic” or “catastrophic” image of the continent. (Cf. John Paul II, Ecclesia in Africa, n. 52) Without a doubt, communication constitutes the first field and form of charity and love.

    Therefore, I would like to congratulate and acknowledge the continued communication efforts at all levels, primarily through the flourishing of radio and television stations wherever they operate in the Church, the Family of God, on the continent, abroad and online. Most of these radio stations are broadcasting daily Vatican Radio bulletins, broadcasts in English, French, Portuguese, Kiswahili and occasionally many other African languages. These daily radio broadcasts, which consist of daily, up-to-date and verified news about the Holy Father and the various dicasteries of the Holy See, are reassuring to people on the African continent and in the world in general.

    Therefore, I am also pleased to remind you that this globalized world also needs to hear from you and what you are doing as a local church in your various dioceses. This is very important. That is why Vatican Radio is your radio. Therefore, I would like to call for more collaboration, more cooperation and more networking.

    We can support each other. Together we are strong. Together we bear witness to our being One, our being “members of each other”. Together, through the radio, through the web, through social media we can build a system with a mission to nurture the word of truth, based on the experience of Pentecost interwoven with the spirit of sharing instead of Babel.

    Therefore, we have made a widget with all our products that you can integrate on your websites.

    On this synodal path, Pope Francis encourages us to “pay special attention to the need to help people, especially young people, to develop a healthy critical sense, learning to distinguish truth from falsehood, good from evil, right from wrong and to appreciate the importance of working for justice, social harmony and respect for our common home”. This is a significant contribution to the spread of a culture of peace based on the truth of the Gospel, because communication is not only a profession, it is also a service to dialogue and mutual understanding between people and communities in the search for a serene life and peaceful coexistence.

    May this Plenary Assembly, centered on the ownership of your continental organization, contribute to promoting communion, collaboration and joint action of all the Episcopal Conferences of Africa and the Islands for the greater glory of God and the good of the Church, Family of God in Africa.

    In fellowship of prayer!

    Paolo Ruffini, prefect

    Bishops

    By Bridget Ikyado

    Abuja, April 29, 2023 No fewer than 150 Catholic Bishops from 16 countries of West Africa are expected to converge on Abuja for a conference on peace building in the region.

    This is contained in a statement issued on Friday in Abuja by Rev. Fr. Michael-Nsikak Umoh, National Director, Social Communications of the Catholic Secretariat of Nigeria.

    Umoh said the conference is scheduled to hold from Monday to May 9  in Abuja.

    He said that the General Assembly of the Reunion of Episcopal Conference of West Africa (RECOWA) will also hold from Monday to May 9, at the Catholic Secretariat of Nigeria, Abuja.

    The event has the theme: “Fratelli Tutti: Path to Build Brotherhood and Sustainable Peace in West Africa.”

    “The conference will address global issues affecting the church and nations, among them are insecurity, unemployment, peace building and evangelism,” he added.

    Umoh  said that RECOWA plenaries will discuss peculiar issues that affect the lives of millions of people in West Africa and explore best ways the Church can support governments toward improving the living conditions of the people using its various organs that address issues of interfaith dialogue, security, good governance, justice and peace.

    The News Agency of Nigeria reports that RECOWA, has had two different organs of collegiality based on linguistic differences.

    The English speaking were in one group known as Association of Episcopal Conferences of Anglophone West Africa (AECAWA established in 1977) while the French speaking formed another conference, known as Conférence Episcopale Régionale de l’Afrique de l’Ouest (CERAO established in 1963).

    However, in 1996, the Bishops of the two bodies recognised the need for a united West African nation on ecclesiastical sphere, following ECOWAS arrangement on the geopolitical platform.

    They recognised the need to come together as a people, join forces and pool resources together for consolidated pastoral programmes in the West African region.

    In view of this, they agreed to form one single Episcopal Association that would bring all Bishops of West Africa on one platform.

    This culminated in the first formal meeting which was held on July 1, 1997 at the headquarters of the SECAM General Secretariat in Accra, Ghana.

    SECAM will hold its 19th Plenary Assembly from 25th July 2022 in Accra, Ghana

    The Symposium of the Episcopal Conferences of Africa and Madagascar (SECAM) (www.SECAM.org), the association of Catholic bishops of Africa, Madagascar and the Islands, will hold its 19th Plenary Assembly from July 25, 2022 to November 1. August 2022 in Accra, Ghana (The Plenary Assembly of the Symposium is held every three years).

    This year's Plenary Assembly, which has as its theme: “Secam Ownership; Security and Migration in Africa and the Islands”, will focus first on the implications of ownership for its members

    Concerned about the many conflicts on the African continent, which cause the death and displacement of millions of people, the Catholic bishops, secondly, consider that security is essential to build "a new Africa centered on God", as expressed in the Kampala Document, published after the SECAM Golden Anniversary in 2019.

    SECAM, established in 1969 in Kampala, Uganda during the visit of Saint Pope Paul VI, was born out of the desire of the African Catholic bishops present at the Second Vatican Council to speak with one voice on matters related to the Church in Africa.

    The Symposium, based in Accra, consists of eight regional associations:

    Association of Episcopal Conferences of Central Africa (ACEAC); Association of Episcopal Conferences of the Central African Region (ACERAC); Assembly of the Catholic Hierarchy of Egypt (AHCE); Association of Member Episcopal Conferences of Eastern Africa (AMECEA); Episcopal Conferences of the Indian Ocean (CEDOI); Regional Episcopal Conference of North Africa (CERNA); Interregional Meeting of the Bishops of Southern Africa (IMBISA); Meeting of the Episcopal Conference of West Africa (RECOWA/CERAO).

    SECAM executes its pastoral commitments through two Commissions, namely: Evangelization and Justice, Peace and Development. To bring the voice of the Catholic Church to the issues of good governance and sustainable development, and to promote servant leadership throughout the continent and the islands, SECAM obtained observer status with the African Union (AU) in 2015.

    To encourage communion, the Symposium has three official languages: English, French and Portuguese, and its foundation (called SECAM Day) is celebrated on July 29.

    Rev. Terwase Henry Akaabiam Secretary General, SECAM
