WELCOME TO SECAM - SCEAM

The Symposium of Episcopal Conferences of Africa and Madagascar (SECAM) was born out of the will of young African Bishops during the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965). The establishment of SECAM is the result of the bishops resolution to build a continental structure in order to bring forth the African vision to the whole Church.

 
Seeing the importance of such an Association for Africa, the Congregation for the Evangelisation of the Peoples invited the Presidents of the Regional Episcopal Conferences for consultation in 1968. A year later, the first-ever visit of a Pope to Africa was seen as very opportune to launch the Symposium of Episcopal Conferences of Africa and Madagascar As a matter of fact, His Holiness Pope Paul VI was welcomed to Kampala (Uganda in July 1969) for the official launching of SECAM.
