CCJP urges sisters to fight human trafficking

The Catholic Commission for Justice and Peace (CCJP) has called on the sisters in the ACWECA region to build a network of information through research and data collection that shows the gravity and scale of the problem of human trafficking. CCJP Secretary, Chris Chisoni said this when he gave a presentation on human trafficking at the just ended 16th ACWECA General Assembly in Lusaka, Zambia.

‘Celebrate the commitment of your sisters,’ superiors general told

GSR Today - A religious canonist has called upon leaders of over 100 congregations gathered at the 16th ACWECA General Assembly to celebrate the gift of their members who are committed to the religious life. Speaking when she gave a presentation on canon law at Andrew’s Motel in Lusaka August 20, Sr. Rosemary Smith asked the superiors to be grateful for the people who are generous to the sisters.

'Go, be not afraid and serve'

GSR Today - If you’re a fan of Catholic sisters, you’ve probably heard already about Nicholas Kristof’s column in The New York Times over the weekend. Now I’m certainly a fan. But I didn’t see the Kristof piece until now, catching up with the news from Lusaka, Zambia, where I’m attending a gathering of women religious leaders from nine African countries.
