Solidarity is searching for personnel



Greetings, Superiors General and other Congregational Leaders,

Solidarity with South Sudan, the inter-congregational initiative of the UISG and USG, is seeking additional religious personnel for our ministries in South Sudan.  Solidarity, founded in 2008, represents a new paradigm for religious life based on the creative collaboration of women and men from diverse congregations and diverse parts of the world.

Presently, we are in need of the following:

  • A religious who could offer retreats, days of reflection, and spiritual direction at the Good Shepherd Peace Center in Kit.
  • A religious with training and experience in offering workshops on Trauma Healing. This person would be based in at the Good Shepherd Center in Kit but would hopefully travel out to other locales in the country to offer these workshops.  The people of South Sudan have been traumatized by many years of violence and this kind of work is a serious need.
  • A religious who is qualified to serve as a tutor in Nursing or Midwifery at the Catholic Health Institute (CHTI) in Wau.
  • A religious with skills and experience in agronomy who could offer leadership and vision for the Solidarity Agricultural Project in Riimenze.
  • A religious who could serve as a teacher for the kindergarten we operate in Riimenze.

These positions could be filled by any competent religious, lay or ordained (priest, Brother, or Sister).  If you are aware of religious in your own congregation or others who might be discerning a new ministry and who are open to an opportunity that promises to be both challenging and rewarding, could I ask you to be in touch with me?  I would be delighted to have a video chat with you via whatsapp or zoom or whatever platform you prefer, or, if you are based here in Rome or nearby, to come and visit with you in person.

With sincere gratitude for your consideration,

Father David Gentry
