Luanda — The Angolan Head of State, João Lourenço, Sunday in Luanda, praised the role played by the Tocoist Church in actions of solidarity with the most disadvantaged and that aim at the consolidation of peace.
In a message addressed to this religious congregation, on the occasion of the 72nd anniversary of its remembrance that is marked today, the Head of State congratulated the faithful, bishops and other leaders, for the work carried out in the moral and spiritual education of Angolans.
"The formation and educational action of the Tocoist Church has contributed to instil, within the faithful, the need to achieve peace, harmony and mutual help among Angolans, as well as solidarity with the most disadvantaged," reads the letter.
For President João Lourenço these are more than enough reasons for the State to recognise the importance of his role.
As part of the celebrations of its 72nd anniversary, the Tocoist church held the I Council, in which it analysed its dogmas and precepts, besides having held the V Ecclesial Congress, which addressed the fulfilment of the schedule approved in the 2016 conclave.
The Church of Our Lord Jesus Christ in the World (Tocoist) was remembered on 25 July 1949, by the prophet Simão Gonçalves Toco. It is implanted in several African, European, Asian and Latin American countries.
