US Bishops in Renewed Pledge of Solidarity with African Church

“Considering the challenges and opportunities that Africa faces and considering the strong bonds of communion that the church in the U.S. and Africa share, we believe now is the time for us as the Catholic Church in the United States to renew our solidarity with the church and the people of this land,” reads the document.

“The Committee on International Justice and Peace is committed to its ongoing support to the church in numerous countries and will continue to encourage the U.S. government to increase financial and other assistance to strengthen humanitarian relief, integral human development, and peace-building efforts for Africa, with due respect for cultures, traditions, and ethical principles of each of the nations of Africa,” the document continues.
