Reconciliation in the Association of Member Episcopal Conferences in Eastern Africa (AMECEA) Region

According to the AMECEA website:

AMECEA is an acronym for ‘Association of Member Episcopal Conferences in Eastern Africa’ It is a Catholic service organization for the National Episcopal Conferences of the eight countries of Eastern Africa, namely Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia. Djibouti and Somalia are affiliate members.

The authority over all AMECEA’s activities rests with the Plenary Assembly of all the Bishops of the AMECEA countries. Between the Plenary Assemblies, the Executive Board takes the necessary decisions, according to the AMECEA priorities."
