Sharing Christ Across Faiths and Cultures Sharing Christ Across Faiths and Cultures Statement on the Mass Shootings of Muslims in New Zealand We are absolutely horrified at the killing of 49 Muslim brothers and sisters in New Zealand. We urge a call to prayer and a renewed promise to interfaith cooperation, the balm in a world of hate. The Xaverian Missionaries, together with all the local clergy, continue to be in solidarity with our Muslim sisters and brothers. READ OUR LETTER OF SOLIDARITY HERE. Share the Journey this Lent **THIS IS NOT CRS PROGRAMMING** A member of a group about to cross the border. They claimed they were Afghanis but may not have been or not had the right papers, as they were turned away. More than 930,000 refugees arrived in Greece in the past 12 months. Last year several thousand people were crossing the border at Idomeni every day but now there are tight restrictions. Caritas is providing food and WASH.

In the presence of the archbishop of Freetown, Edward Tamba Charles, the community celebrated its patron saint, Edward the Confessor of the faith. Established in 2008, the Rokel catholic community has been for a long time a ‘mobile community’; from a mango tree to different family houses and later in the community centre. Finally, the community managed to acquire a piece of land and started to build. Help us build the Church worldwide.
