Advocacy, Catholics Confront Global Poverty

Online Discussion: The Church in Africa: A Force for Peace

The Church teaches that reconciliation is needed to heal relationships broken by violent conflict. In many parts of the world it has answered the call for peace, reconciliation and forgiveness by working towards justice for oppressed people and by defending those who have suffered from violence. The Second African Synod with its theme, ‘The Church in Africa in Service to Reconciliation, Justice and Peace,’ will attempt to build on these peacebuilding activities so that the Church becomes a more potent force for peace in Africa.

Join this webcast to discuss:

* Current trends that are influencing peace in Africa;
* The role of the Church in Africa;
* The significance of this African Synod;
* The increasingly important role of the Church in peacebuilding; and
* How Catholics in the U.S. through the Catholics Confront Global Poverty initiative, can participate in resolving conflict and building peace in Africa and around the world.

Thirty minutes of this webcast will be reserved to take questions from the audience.
