Mali > Social : Julien MORY SIDIBé

Biography :

Julien Mory Sidibé (1927-2003) was bishop of Mali from 1974 until his death.

Born into a Muslim family in the village of Goualala, Julien Mory Sidibé began his education at a local Catholic missionary school. He later studied at the seminary at Goumi in Upper Volta (now Burkina Faso). In 1957, he was ordained a priest in Bougouni, Mali. For five years he directed the catechism school of Faladie, then that of Ntonimba.

In 1971, he began working on his dissertation in theology in France, and was soon informed by Luc Sangare, archbishop of Bamako, that he would be made a bishop on his return to Mali, a post Sidibé took in 1974. He is particularly remembered for a 1991 speech at the National Conference of Mali in which he urged a smooth transition into communism.
