“Africa Is not Destined to Die: Signs of Hope and Renewal”
An International Conference Ten Years After

“The Jubilee in Marginalised Africa Today”

 Ten years ago from 1-6 May 2000, an international consultation with the theme: “The Jubilee in Marginalised Africa Today” was convened at Uganda Martyrs University, Nkozi, Uganda. The main thrust of this jubilee gathering was to address different theological and other themes at the occasion of celebrating the Jubilee Year 2000. The proceedings of that international consultation were edited by Peter Kanyandago and published by Pauline Publications Africa in 2002, as “Marginalised Africa: An International Perspective”.

 On the occasion of celebrating 10 years of that great event, The Centre for African Christian Studies (CACISA) Kampala, UGANDA in conjunction with Nijmegen Institute of MissioN Studies (NIM) of Radboud University Nijmegen, The Netherlands, and the Catholic Theological Faculties of St. Mary’s National Seminary Ggaba, St. Mbaaga’s Major seminary Ggaba and St. Paul’s Seminary, Kinyamasika, have organised an International Theological Conference to review the jubilee consultation and its theme, the events that have taken place in Africa thereafter,  especially the continued numerical growth of the church in Africa, the celebration of Second Special Assembly for Africa of the Synod of Bishops of 2009, and the contemporary general picture of Africa as a continent.

 The theme of this forthcoming international conference is: “Africa Is not Destined to Die: Signs of Hope and Renewal.” The conference aims at addressing the continued lamentation and self-pity on the continent and seeks to identify and promote what is positive dimension in Africa as the very source of her energy for regeneration and as a true sign for a new hope for herself, humanity and the entire world.
