Catholics must support Catholic media says Bishop Chengula

Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Mbeya Rt. Rev. Evaristus Chengula has encouraged the faithful to support Catholic Church owned media houses for continued evangelization. Speaking recently at Mbeya Cathedral during the 21st Anniversary celebration of Radio Maria Tanzania, Bishop Chengula said that, the faithful have the obligation to promote Christ mission by supporting new evangelization through multiple media. The Bishop said that, the catholic media houses and the personnel who make evangelization through different mediums of communication possible, needed to be maintained to ensure that the gospel is heard far and wide. Former Prime Minister of the United Republic of Tanzania Mizengo Pinda also appealed to Catholics in the country and people of good will to support the catholic media activities due to dwindling donor funding. "Nowadays we have no donors from Europe to support the Church as well as its servicesso we need to own our media houses. I believe we will succeed if every believer contributes financially and in kind to empower the media.” Pinda said Pinda emphasized that, self-reliance is necessary for the church today noting that, the catholic media in her role of educating, entertaining and informing the masses, also enlighten the people about the social teachings of the Catholic Church. “Attending mass on Sundays only is not enough, we need ongoing catechism.” He said
