An Unexpected Challenge and Urgent Request: Update from South Sudan

Sudan - Feeding the Hungry

On New Year’s Day, the village of Riimenze in Western Equatoria was the scene of intense fighting between the Sudan People’s Liberation Army (national army) and rebels, made up primarily of local men and boys “recruited” to defend their area. During the fighting, homes were looted and burned, sometimes with people in them. Over 5000 people from the village fled their homes and are sheltering at the parish in Riimenze, the site of the Solidarity Agricultural Training Project.

Despite rainy weather and dramatic traffic challenges at the eleventh hour, the Brothers Symposium held on March 25, 2017 at the University of Notre Dame was a very special day for all who participated.

Over 225 individuals attended the Symposium and interacted with speakers, facilitators, panel members, breakout session leaders, and scribes who represented over 750 years as vowed religious in over 15 different communities/institutes.  Thank you to all — your commitment to religious brothers inspires us all!
