Priest murdered in Central African Republic

April 23, 2014

A priest in the Central African Republic was murdered on Good Friday, according to a statement issued by Caritas, the Church’s federation of relief and development agencies.

Father Christ Forman Wilibona, a priest who ministered in the Diocese of Bossangoa, was driving to his parish when he was shot six times.

“We denounce and condemn these barbaric acts from another age,” said Archbishop Dieudonné Nzapalainga, the nation’s leading prelate. “We invite the people of the Central African Republic as well as all men and women of good will to pray for the return of peace and security to our country and to open their hearts to dialogue and reconciliation.”
