Catechist killed, parishes closed after jihadist attack in Burkina Faso
February 20, 2020
CWN Editor's Note: A Catholic catechist was one of the 24 Christians killed by Islamic terrorists who attacked an ecumenical prayer meeting in Burkina Faso. The attack prompted Church officials to close a parish in area. Three of the six parishes in the Dori diocese have now been shut down because of terrorist attacks, and about 100 Catholics have now taken refuge at the diocesan cathedral.The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
