At the last plenary session of the Bishops of the SACBC (Southern African Catholic Bishops’ Conference) it was decided to express our solidarity with the suffering people in Gaza. We would do it by:
- supporting the call for a Week of Prayer for Peace to be held in all our dioceses from 21 – 27 September;
- taking up a collection in all dioceses by the end of September to support a children’s home in Gaza, to be sent through the Catholic Patriarch in Jerusalem.
The Commission of Justice and Peace has prepared a pamphlet offering guidelines for a Week of Prayer which can be found by clicking HERE.
