By Scout Coordinator
Leaders of the Catholic Scout Organisation of the Diocese of Karonga on Sunday 27th October, 2019 visited St Mary’s Parish in Karonga Diocese to introduce the organization at the parish. The team was led by the Coordinator of the organization in the Diocese, Deodatus Muriya.
In his remarks during the Eucharistic celebration, during which the Scouts served as ushers and sang scout songs, the Parish Priest who is also Bishop’s and Pastoral Secretary of the Diocese of Karonga, commended the group for visiting his parish. He further urged young people in the parish to join the group as it promote peace within the Church and community.
Speaking on behalf of the group, Mr. Deodatus Muriya, who is the Coordinator of the organization at Diocesan level informed the congregation that Catholic scouting empowers young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in the world today.
“Scouting draws young people to responsible participation in the life, mission and work of the Catholic faith community. It fosters the total personal and spiritual growth of every young person,” said Muriya.
After the Mass, ten of the young people who showed interest to join the grouping registered their names.
