OUR BISHOPS AND PRIESTS

Bishops, in union with and in subordination to the Pope, serve the people of their own dioceses with ordinary jurisdiction and authority. They also have, in collegiate manner with the Pope and with each other, concern and efforts for the general welfare of the whole Church. The Zimbabwean Bishops form, as their coordinating body, the Zimbabwe Catholic Bishops’ Conference (ZCBC), which was constituted by Roman Decree on 1 October 1969
