Women's Festival
EAB PRESS 050214-1
February 14, 2005

[EAB Press - Burundi] The women of Matana diocese and CNEB jointly organised the third women’s festival that was held in Matana in January.

The event brought together 150 women representing the ten participating churches of CNEB from across the country. The theme was “Be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.”

The event encouraged women to become involved in social/political issues so that they begin to influence decision-making and electoral processes, and play their part in social transformation. It addressed issues of concern about the forthcoming elections and the future stability of the country.

A service of celebration in the cathedral concluded the event.
