About sixty confreres gathered for their annual Zambian Sector Assembly, this time again at Kasisi. Our confrere Venerato Babaine accepted to act as moderator of the assembly. Dr. Lloyd, working as a medical doctor at the new Cardinal Adam Memorial Catholic Hospital in Bauleni, Lusaka provided two talks; one on Diabetes becoming an emerging health emergency and the second one on prostate cancer. Diabetes is predicted to exceed the ravages
of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the near future while prostate cancer is the most common cancer in the world among men. The second talk on pastoral issues was offered by Dr. Fr. Leonard Namuhumba who is a lecturer at St. Dominic’s Major Seminary. As usual, each community gave a report of their activities and brought their views and concerns on various questions related to our commitments and future engagements. Thanks to the Provincial Christopher Chileshe, using a PowerPoint presentation, the confreres got a better understanding of the decisions taken at the Plenary Council which took place in Ouagadougou, West Africa. The end of the meeting ended with a farewell party in honour of Father Henk van der Steen who decided to retire in his native land in Holland. For he’s a jolly good fellow, for he’s a jolly good fellow, For he’s a jolly good fellow, and so say all of us! Here some pictures of the event.
