For more than fifteen (15) years, the Association des Cadres Catholiques of Côte d’Ivoire (ACC-CI) has seen its activities suspended, by decision of the hierarchy of the Church, following conflicts of interest and skills of former leaders.
Aware of the important role of lay faithful in the Church (see Vatican Council II), the Fathers Bishops of Côte d’Ivoire, during their Plenary Assembly on January 22, 2017, invited the Catholic Cadres “to take or better to take back their place, not only in the proclamation of the gospel, where the call of God has placed them, but also in the decisions that impact the future of the nation ”.
