Bishop shot in Rumbek


Dear friends of Solidarity with South Sudan,


Early this morning, I received the shocking news that the Bishop elect of Rumbek Diocese Christian Carlassare, Comboni Missionary, was shot by two gunmen at his residence in Rumbek just after midnight (26th April). It appears to be a targeted shooting. Fortunately, he was shot in the legs with no apparent damage to his bones. He is now in a stable condition. More details can be found in the attached link.


Let us pray for his recovery and for peace and unity in Rumbek Diocese,


United in prayer,


Fr. Jim Greene M. Afr.

Executive Director
