Celina is welcomed by the Archbishop of Brazil

They talked about the cooperation of the Catholic Church with the local leadership, as well as the sad episodes related to anti-democratic attacks.

Acting Governor Celina Leo met with the Archbishop of Brazil, Cardinal Dom Paulo Cesar, at the Metropolitan Curia of Brazil this Monday (6). They talked about the cooperation between the Catholic Church and the local administration, as well as the sad episodes related to the anti-democratic attacks that took place in the federal capital at the beginning of January.

“It is important to dialogue with religious leaders so that everyone can practice their doctrine and have their legitimate space in the Federal District,” the Acting Governor said. “We have some partnerships that have benefited the Catholic Church, such as regulating the affairs of its cathedrals as well as other religions, which has been very positive,” he noted. Since 2019, the GDF has issued 287 land regulation certificates for land occupied by religious temples and social support organizations in the capital.

Dom Paulo Cesar thanked for the visit and emphasized that the goal is to regulate many other lands occupied by churches with the support of the government. The cardinal commented on the attacks on the headquarters of the three powers last January 8. “We talked about the difficult times that the ZU went through and how the acting governor was able to spend the moment wisely, protecting the DF and the people,” he commented.
