Dondo – The governor of Cuanza Norte, Adriano Mendes de Carvalho, this Sunday acknowledged the role of the Catholic Church in the moralization of society and in the process of citizens’ education.

Speaking at a thanksgiving mass, in reference to the 40 years of the presence of the Salesian Congregation in Angola, Adriano Mendes de Carvalho noted that the Catholic Church has contributed to the training of many children, adolescents and young people, as well as in adult literacy.

He also mentioned the Don Bosco professional training centres, owned by the Salesian Fathers, which have allowed the integral training of many young people in the province.

The provincial governor asked the Catholic Church to continue praying for peace and union within families, contributing to the construction of a just, cohesive and prosperous society for all Angolans.

“We ask that messages of love, forgiveness and good education be promoted, with a view to avoiding hatred, revenge and all kinds of division among citizens,” he added.

The thanksgiving mass, which took place on the Dondo riverside, had as its motto “Moved by hope”.
