The work of the 11th Plenary Assembly of the Association of Episcopal Conferences of the Central African subregion (Acerac) opens solemnly this Monday at the Yaounde Congress Hall.

VIP Guest of the launching ceremony of the Plenary Assembly of the Association of Episcopal Conferences of the Central African subregion in Yaoundé, Paul Biya responded to absent, according to a source at the Ministry of Territorial Administration and Decentralization. The same source said that it was the head of this ministerial department, Minister René Emmanuel Sadi, who was appointed by the President of the Republic to represent him.

The prelates from the four corners of the subregion, first participated yesterday Sunday in a pontifical mass in the Cathédrale Notre-Dames-des victoires de Yaounde. From Monday morning until Sunday 16 July, the participants in the High Mass of the Prelates of the 11th Plenary Assembly of the Association will discuss the theme “Ecumenism and Interfaith Dialogue in Central Africa“.

Given the social tensions in the Northwest Region of Cameroon, the war against Boko haram, which affects, among other countries, Chad and Cameroon, civil war and religious conflict in the Central African Republic, the theme of this 11th plenary assembly of the Association of Episcopal Conferences of the Central African subregion could not have been better.

We want as a church, to initiate dialogue, to invite all men, believers and men of good will, to come together to dialogue and come together to build a society where there is peace, or men agree to live together, “said yesterday at the end of the pontifical Mass of the launch, Msgr. Samuel Kleda, president of the Episcopal Conference of Cameroon and current president of Acerac
