Holy See, Burundi formalize accord

Catholic World News - March 03, 2014

The Holy See and Burundi have formalized an accord that “guarantees the juridical status of the Catholic Church” in the East African nation, according to the Holy See Press Office.

The agreement, which was negotiated in 2012, also provides a legal framework for canonical marriage, places of worship, Catholic educational and charitable institutions, chaplains, and property taxation.

Burundi, a nation that is 68% Catholic, has had diplomatic relations with the Holy See since 1963.
