Online chat with Southern Sudan bishop

Catholic World News - June 10, 2011

Catholic Relief Services is hosting a live online chat with a Southern Sudanese bishop on June 15.

When Bishop Eduardo Hiiboro Kussala, 47, was an infant, troops from the north killed his mother. Two million lost their lives in the long Sudanese civil war (1983-2005) between the Muslim north and the largely animist and Christian south. Southern Sudan will become an independent nation on July 9.

As a priest, Bishop Kussala served for a time as the rector of his diocese’s minor seminary; the seminary was located in a Sudanese refugee camp the Central African Republic.

“My message to the Catholic population [of the US] is their brothers and sisters in Southern Sudan have been under oppression and have been suffering, and they need to be free.”
