The Catholic Bishop of Karonga Diocese, Bishop Martin Mtumbuka, has asked the church's young people to be ambassadors of peace, joy and defend the church.

In his homily during the opening mass of the National Annual General Meeting of Young Christian Workers at St. Joseph the Worker Cathedral in Karonga on Saturday, Bishop Mtumbuka also took a swipe at some of the church's youth who at times have been attacking the church just to please their political masters.

"If you kill the church and faith, you will be more miserable than before. Defend and share the gospel to others with commitment so that the message of salvation goes out to all," said Bishop Mtumbuka.

Young Christian Workers (YCY) President, Light Burton, asked the church leadership to increase the job opportunities to the youth of which the majority are unemployed.

Some of the prominent individuals who attended the mass were the Chairperson of the Pastoral Commission at Episcopal Conference of Malawi, Bishop Peter Musikuwa, who is also the Episcope for Chikwawa Diocese, National Youth Chaplain, Fr. Veraliano Mtseka and diocesan chaplains from all the eight dioceses.
