Zomba Diocese CWO holds AGM

Bishop of Zomba Diocese, Right Reverend Alfred Mateyu Chaima, was speaking at Zomba Cathedral on Thursday, September 14, 2023 at the opening Mass for the organisation’s four-day Annual General Meeting (AGM).

Bishop Chaima commended the women for being result-oriented as evidenced by their investment spirit which he described it as a catalyst for attaining self-reliance.

The Local Ordinary said that women contribute significantly to the life of the church, hence the need for the Diocese to support their organisation so that they can achieve their goals.

In her speech, the chairperson of Catholic Women Organisation in Zomba Diocese, Mrs. Christina Lakiyoni, said the women are expected to discuss several issues including business and investment plans, on top of general spiritual issues.

She added that currently they have a maize mill and they are also constructing a girls’ hostel which will be generating income for the organization’s self-reliant drive.

Delegates at the AGM

Besides holding the Annual General Meeting, the women are also celebrating 50 years of CWO existence, also known as Golden Jubilee, as they gather at St. Peters Major Seminary, venue for this year’s AGM.
