Juba, 21 April, 2022 / 9:00 pm (ACI Africa).
Readers of the 280-page newly launched book are expected to gain deeper insight into the identity, life, and real situations of the people of God in South Sudan, a Catholic Nun has told participants during the virtual event that took place Thursday, April 21.
Published under the title, “Collaborative Mission in South Sudan: Towards a New Paradigm”, the book details activities and projects of Solidarity with South Sudan (SSS), an initiative of the International Union of Superiors General (UISG) and the Union of Superiors General (USG), established in response to a request from the members of the Sudan Catholic Bishops’ Conference (SCBC).
“The book gives us a little window to the life and reality of real people, the people of South Sudan, and the efforts made so far by those who committed themselves at great cost, some at the cost of their lives, to be in solidarity with the people,” Sr. Teresa Okure said about the book that was edited by Fr. Lazar Stanislaus and Sr. Carolyn Buhs.
Sr. Okure added, “The book further gives us biblical, theological and historical reflections on the life of the people of South Sudan and the activities of the project of solidarity with them.”
