Jesuit Regional Superior in South Africa, Father David Rowan, has been elected as the new president of the Leadership of Consecrated Life (LCCL) in Southern Africa. In an interview with Russell Pollitt, he speaks about the role of LCCL and its current priorities.
LCCL is an association of the elected leaders, men and women, of religious congregations or societies of apostolic life in Southern Africa.
The conference, amongst other things, seeks to promote the welfare of the religious institutes; to work on joint apostolic projects; to promote the efficacy of each leader in their own institute and to work with the Southern African Catholic Bishops’ Conference (SACBC) in furthering the mission of the Church in Southern Africa.
The LCCL helps the leaders of religious institutes to speak with one voice and to promote programmes and raise awareness on issues affecting the lives of many people on national and international levels. At this time LCCL is, with the bishops, focusing on four major areas of apostolic concern: migration, human trafficking, the protocols and racism.
