Collaborative Mission in South Sudan

Apr 19, 2022 | Solidarity & Mission

Rome, Italy. An online launch of the Solidarity book entitled “Collaborative Mission in South Sudan” will take place at 14:30 Central European Time on the 21st of April 2022. This publication gives an insight into the activities and hopes of “Solidarity with South Sudan” and the people of South Sudan, and it reflects on the new paradigm offered by this faith-based organization.

The book presentation will be held online to allow greater participation from congregations, unions, and donors not present in Rome. Panelists during the presentation are Sr. Carolyn Buhs, SNDdeN; Fr. Josè Cristo Rey Paredes, CMF; Sr. Maria Cimperman, RSCJ; and Sr. Teresa Okure, SHCJ. Br. Emili Turù will moderate the event. At the end of the presentation, there will be a short question and answer session.

The link to attend the Book Launch and other documents will be shared with the participants and published on the website of Solidarity with South Sudan in the next few weeks. 

Solidarity with South Sudan, a faith-based organization, began in 2008 with a request from the Sudanese Bishops’ Conference. The response came from women and men religious, representing the International Union of Superiors General (UISG), and Union of Superiors General (USG), respectively. The keyword was “solidarity” and the focus was on South Sudan: hence the name of the project. Nowadays, a total of 260 congregations, private donors, and international agencies support the project with funding, personnel, and expertise. Working closely with the local church, the project runs a teacher training college, a health training institute, a sustainable farm with an outreach program, and pastoral services.
