CWN Editor's Note: The ordination of Father Christian Carlassare to be Bishop of Rumbek, South Sudan, has been postponed until 2002, as the bishop-elect continues to recover from gunshot wounds. He was shot in both legs in an apparent assassination attempt in April; twelve men—including clerics—have been arrested for the shooting.
