Celebration for our communities in the Diocese of Bouar.

The three Betharramite communities present in the Diocese of Bouar (Central African Republic) shared a great joy with the whole community of the diocese: after two years of waiting, the diocese of Bouar has a new Bishop.

Celebration for our communities in the Diocese of Bouar.

Mgr Miroslaw Gucwa, a Polish priest who was formerly the vicar of the diocese, was consecrated bishop on February 11, by Mgr. Dieudonné Nzapalainga, Cardinal of Bangui.

Mgr Miroslaw Gucwa succeeds Mgr. Armando Gianni (ofm cap.) who remained at the helm of the diocese since its creation in 1978.

During the recent conflict, Mgr Miroslaw Gucwa contributed to the religious dialogue promoted by Catholic, Protestant and Muslim authorities.

Many religious working in the diocese attended the ceremony. All the religious of the Betharramite communities were present at this meaningful moment of the life of the local Church.

After the celebration, the Betharramite religious had the opportunity to personally meet Mons Miroslaw in the premises of the Betharramite parish of Our Lady of Fatima along with Cardinal Nzapalainga, the Bishops of Bangassou, Mbaiki and Alindao and the Apostolic Nuncio Mgr Santiago De Wit Guzmán.

Mons Gucwa explained that he will dedicate his ministry to the care of the poor and the sick, who are present in large numbers in the diocese also because of armed conflicts for which "many people have to leave their homes and villages and need both material and spiritual help".
