Catholic Media Services Mourns Father Charles Chilinda

Published

on

THE Catholic Media Services (CMS) and the Zambia Conference of Catholic Bishops (ZCCB) Communications Commission have described the death of Father Charles Chilinda as shocking.

In a statement issued today, CMS director Winfield Kunda said Father Chilinda was part of the growth of the Catholic media in the country, who impacted greatly both church-run media outlets and the secular ones.
“In his quest to ‘feed’ the nation with right information, Father Chilinda traversed this country and beyond resulting in the production of well researched programs that were aired on various media platforms. Through Loyola production studios, he also helped in recording and archiving many events of the nation and the church which shall be referred to in many years to come,” Father Kunda said.
He said Father Chilinda was also a member of the Lumen TV Steering Committee at the time the Catholic Bishops were planning to establish a national Catholic Television, Lumen TV.
“It is also through his leadership that Father Chilinda, managed to setup a Jesuit TV station called Loyola TV,” he said.
Father Kunda further said the demise of Fr Chilinda is a great loss to both the Church and many students in various institutions of learning whom he spoke to on film production.
He said the Catholic Church in Zambia and the region will greatly miss his advice on various media and communication matters.
“On behalf of Catholic Media Services and all our catholic media houses dotted across the nation, we send our heartfelt condolences to the Jesuit Community, the family and friends on this great loss of a priest that took advantage of his ministry as a shepherd to bring peace among our national political leadership.
We pray that God may look on Father Chilinda with mercy and grant him eternal rewards as he returns home to his Father and our Father, the God of us all,” Father Kunda said.
