Christopher Miti-First Lady ESTHER LUNGU says she is grateful to the church in Zambia for the support it is giving to President EDGAR LUNGU and government as he carries out the responsibility of uplifting the lives of Zambians.
Mrs. LUNGU says the church has provided counsel to Zambia’s leadership, congregants and general citizenry over the years.
She says the role that the church is playing has contributed to the country’s prosperity.
The First Lady was speaking when she graced the 50th anniversary celebration for the Theresian Sisters in Chipata Diocese at St Anne’s Cathedral .
Mrs. LUNGU who contributed 20-thousand kwacha to the Theresian Sisters Congregation urged the sisters to continue emulating the virtues of hard work, love, compassion and rendering humble services to the poor as taught by Jesus Christ.
Earlier in his sermon Lilongwe Archbishop TARCISCIO ZIYAYE says the Anniversary should re-energize the Theresian Sisters.
Archbishop ZIYAYE urged the sisters not to go against the mission of their profession.
Chipata Diocese Bishop GEORGE LUNGU who is also president of the Zambia Conference for Catholic Bishops presided over the Anniversary mass together with Archbishop ZIYAYE.
The Theresian Sisters congregation started in Malawi in 1929 before extending to Zambia in 1970.
