Jos – Bishop Ignatius Kaigama, the Archbishop of Jos Catholic Diocese, on Sunday inaugurated the new executive council of the Catholic Women Organisation (CWO), with a call on the leaders to be prayerful and patient.
“Leadership can be very challenging and tasking. You must be prayerful and patient with those you are leading,” he said in a brief speech at the inaugural ceremony in Jos.
He urged the women leaders to be good ambassadors of the Church and treat all CWO members equally.
Kaigama advised them to embrace the virtues of diligence and hard work, and stressed the need to remain focused toward achieving set goals.
“There will naturally be trying moments, but you should not be distracted or discouraged,” he said.
In her acceptance speech, Mrs. Mary Gomsuk, the new CWO President, thanked the Church for the opportunity to serve and promised to be fair to all.
