Condolence Message on the Passing Away of Bishop Hamungole and Fr. Kelly Bishop Moses Hamungole (L) of Monze Catholic Diocese and Fr Michael Kelly (R) of the JCTR

 

The Council of Churches in Zambia (CCZ) has learnt with shock the sudden passing away of Bishop Moses Hamungole of Monze Catholic Diocese and Fr Michael Kelly of the JCTR. Our sincere condolences go to the Hamungole and Kelly families and the entire Zambia Conference of Catholic Bishops (ZCCB), and the Jesuit Centre for Theological Reflections (JCTR).

The CCZ will remember Bishop Hamungole for his selfless dedication to the work of God, firstly as a Catholic Bishop; secondly, as Chairman of the Commission for Social Communications at the Zambia Conference of Catholic Bishops; and thirdly, as Chairman of the Department of Social Communications at the Nairobi-based Association of Member Episcopal Conferences of Eastern Africa.

We will also remember Fr Kelly for his advocacy on HIV and AIDS; his tireless services in educating and promoting safe behaviour among youths and those most at risk in Zambia, the entire sub-Saharan Africa, and much further afield.

We praise God for the lives and ministry of both Bishop Hamungole and Fr Kelly. We pray that God will give the bereaved families, the ZCCB and JCTR needed grace, strength and wisdom at a time like this. We assure you of our prayers as we also pray for the Departed Souls to Rest in Eternal Peace.

Rev. Canon Emmanuel Chikoya

GENERAL SECRETARY
