This year in particular, is a special year because ACWECA is celebrating its  40th Anniversary whose climax will be on the 17th of August 2014 at the Cathedral of the Child Jesus. The Zambia Association of Sisterhoods together with the very vibrant Catholic Women of Zambia will be at the forefront of the Celebration. Various Priests and Clergy in Zambia will officiate the ceremony as well as cerebrate mass.

In addition to the Sisters, the plenary will be attended by invited Government officials in Zambia (for the opening ceremony, anniversary celebrations and open sessions), AMECEA, ACWECA partners and friends.

The attendance of this year’s General Assembly (Plenary) has been recorded as the highest in recent years owing to the sensitization by the Association on its mission and vision coupled with various project undertaken.  ACWECA has made major strides in accomplishing the same for the good of the church and the communities the many sisters represented serve in.
